Best info for hotel reservations; visit after the bad slides

I might visit CT again in March, even after the mud slides. Saw the photos and thought that a little tourist revenue could not hurt the area.

I thought that there would be some rooms open, but not much at TA.

Any recommendations for March 1-4, three nights.

Traveling solo. Moderate lodging.

I have only been there once, so I would appreciate your help!

Riomaggiore, Corniglia and Manarola were completely unaffected by the flooding and mudslides in October, so any hotels or rooms you find in these three towns will be accurate information. They are as the were the past season - nothing was harmed by the flood.

Monterosso's Old Town and Vernazza are another story. Monterosso is planning on being fully reopen by Easter, but many places in the new town will be open before that (March) as they were not harmed in the flood, which mainly affected the historic Old Town center. Vernazza is anticipating opening in late spring as well, which is out of your time frame of early March.

It's best to contact hotels directly in Monterosso or Vernazza to ask what their plans are and when they will be open. In a normal season, by mid-March to April things "open up" again after the winter off season, and you might run into some establishments closed for this reason at the beginning of March, not the flood.

Also, you can check www.rebuildmonterosso.com and savevernazza.com for updates directly related to those two towns.

Early March is not the best time for CT but it can be done. Vernazza will still be under major construction but you could choose one of the other villages. Weather will be iffy. Its nice that you want to be supportive of the area but you will have to decide if it's best for you to spend your time there in off season
