Tramonti is the ideal place to visit all the villages in the
Cinque Terre (Five Lands); the first village,
Riomaggiore, is only 10 minutes far by car.
All the Cinque Terre
can be reached by car, by train (stopping in every small station)
and sailing on the vessels from/to the seaport in La Spezia
all day long.
But maybe the best way to enjoy this area is walking along
the well-known paths from Portovenere to all the other villages
of the Cinque Terre. Maybe the most famous path is named "Via
dell'amore" (The path of love) from
Riomaggiore to Manarola.
From Tramonti you can drive for about 30 minutes and reach
the wonderful village of Portovenere , declared
World Heritage of Humanity by Unesco as well
as all the Cinque Terre.
From Tramonti you can drive and easily reach all the villages
in the Gulf of Poets (this is the name the gulf of La Spezia
is given), and discover they're rich in art and history; in
particular, you can see Lerici, Tellaro, Montemarcello, real
pearls on the seaside which fascinated romantic poets
like Byron and Shelley.
In 10 minutes by car you can reach the city of La
Spezia, where every kind of service is available.
The most famous places of the cuty are the Naval Museum (unique
in Italy), The Amedeo Lia Art Museum, the Camec Modern Art
Museum, the parks and gardens along the seaside, among the
best in Italy.
The medieval village of Sarzana, enriched
by beautiful monuments in its old town centre and by food
specialities and interesting events is really worth a visit.
If you love water and nature you can enjoy the "River
Park of the Magra River" taking a walk or riding
If you love mountains you can chose among many excursions
in the Apuan Alps nearby, up to 1.960 m.
on the Pisanino mount top, the highest peak of these alps.
And last but not least, if you love night-life, the thousands
of trendy pubs and nights of the Versilia
will fulfill every expectation.
