I'm hoping to visit the Cinque Terre next year for a few days. I plan to do a couple of the walks from one town to the next and maybe go on a boat trip to another town nearby. I want it to be warm enough to wear shorts but don't want to be too uncomfortable either. Would travelling in May be a good idea since it's not peaked the high Summer temperatures ? Also I don't want it to be too crowded so I would miss out July and August anyway. If I booked as little as maybe 6 weeks in advance , would I still be able to find good basic accomodation ?
any ideas would be most welcome
