Remember that a car is not useful in the Cinque Terre, as the roads are narrow and cars are not permitted at all in the tiny towns. The best way to visit them is by foot, boat or train.

For a visitor there are essentially 2 options: stay IN the Cinque Terre or close (5 km) to the Cinque Terre. It's very much a decision of whether you prefer to stay in the crowd (people, restaurants, cafes, shops ecc) or in a quieter environment. La Sosta guests prefer the second option and many are without a car.



If you will not have a car for your stay here, you may wish to rent a scooter. For these you can call “Paddock” in Via Zoppi 16, Levanto, tel. 0187-802005 (we could book these for you once you are here).
