After seing online pictures of Cinque Terre, I knew I had to include it in my Italy itinerary. I am sooooo glad to have found Villa Anaranta!!!! At first I was worried that La Spezia wasn't the best place to stay to visit Cinque Terre, but it turned out to be PERFECT! To top it off, Villa Amaranta is as perfect as all the reviewers say. Great location just outside the city, overlooking the gulf. The rooms are stylish and very well appointed, and ours had a lovely terrace overlooking the bay. Breakfast was spectacular! Fresh fruit, fresh pastries, everything was delicious and carefully prepared. Rosalba is a great hostess (and her husband is also great) and gave us very good recommendations to eat out in La Spezia. We got to visit Cinque Terre, which is as beautiful as all the pictures but too crowded for my tastes, even in October, so, on Rosalba's recommendation, we visited Porto Venere on our second day... It was just perfect. Lovely and colorful, minus the crowds!
Listen to all the other reviewers! If you want to visit the area, stay here. It is a wonderful experience, a wonderful place with great hosts. More
