Transcript of Cinque Terre 2015 extract 2 - Coastal Walking · PDF fileCinque Terre - Five villages Cinque...

Edition 2015

Preface

Welcome to our Cinque Terre e-book. It is a practical addition to our website, which should make it even easier to

prepare for your trip. During your stay, the book will certainly come in handy.

The book contains the basic information you will also find on the website, but there is a lot of additional information.

o All kinds of cards with which you can start walking as soon as you get there.

o Practical tips for using public transport

o Some parking tips, that will pay back the price of this book.

o Tips for restaurants (we did not try them all ourselves - selection based on TripAdvisor)

o Discount Vouchers, which are the result of our contacts with some local merchants. We are glad to make some

publicity for them, even without asking for a compensation. We have been there and were satisfied.

Our book has been created "printer friendly". For the text we used a shade of gray. The number of images is limited and

their size is reduced to a minimum. Use the table of contents to decide what you want to print. It is likely that you will not

visit all places described in the book. You don't even need to print. You can download it on your tablet and even on your

smartphone it is legible.

Timetables, opening times and prices do change once in a while. Any corrections can be sent to me by e-mail

([email protected]). If there are important messages in the course of the year, we will publish them as soon as

possible on the homepage of our website. So be sure to check our website before your departure.

You still have to book your stay ?

Suggestions for a place to stay can be found on the website. They are based on our own experience and the

recommendations we received from visitors to our site.

Do you use booking.com? When you book through the link below (or a similar link on the website) I earn a small

commission which enables me to further develop the website.

You still have a question after reading this book ?

Feel free to contact me by e-mail. Usually, the answer will follow within the next 24 hours.

I wish you "buon viaggio".

Since August 2013, I work full-time on my website www.coastalwalking.com, a conscious choice, after

27 years in the financial sector, to start working on something that I truly enjoy.

Besides Cinque Terre, you can find on the website also 'similar' destinations as the Amalfi Coast, the

French Riviera, the Opal Coast, Lanzarote, Madeira, ...
