Not far from Cinque Terre but far less touristic, a wonderful original and beautiful place, with nice walks to do and very good restaurants.

This old fishing village was cut off from its neighbours as the coastal roads were not built until the early 20th century.
The heart of the village is the church and the small piazza with restaurant and a large terraced cafe.
We stroll up there on foot as the views are breathtaking along the coast.
We also fight for a table facing the sea and the 3 little islands across the bay. Tino, Tinetto and
Palmeria.
This is one of my most
treasured pass time.
It is also the fashionable
Hangout place for people from Milano or Firenze.
Do not miss this wonderful experience

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.

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.

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.
