“Beautiful, Undiscovered Seaside Village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

We added this stop on to a visit to Lucca - it's about 35 minutes north. Tellaro is a really small town built into the cliff rising from the water. There's no sand beach but people were laying out on the rocks. Not a lot to do other than enjoy the beauty and marvel at the village.

“Very Pretty Village with Great Walking Treks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

Tellaro is small but very beautiful with a nice little free beach and great multi-colored houses. Parking is limited so get there early to find either a free or pay spot. Stroll through the many little streets with great history and charm. You can then take a very nice 30-minute walk along the main road to Lerici, a larger seaside village with many more restaurants, a large free beach, and shops, and continue on along the seaside board walk to San Terenzo. There are also much longer hiking opportunities from Tellaro to Lerici through the mountains. You can easily spend a whole day in this area and you will not forget the incredible views you will experience.

“Quiet little lovely village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

Is not yet discovered by large amount of tourist, so no shops, just some little restaurants/bars. It's a short walk down to the harbour at sea, but worth the walk. A little harbour...an old church and the beautiful blue sea.

If you like to take pictures, this is your place! It's very small and very good preserved. Colors of the houses are vivid and geometries are tipical of Liguria architecture. There's a good view on sea landscape. During the week-end, especially on summer, you will for sure be part of wedding photo shooting.
