Will a stay in Levanto diminish the Cinque Terre experience?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a 7 night stay in the Cinque Terre region in May 2013. Most of the affordable apartments I have found are in Levanto rather than one of the 5 villages. Would a stay there give us considerably less of the small fishing village experience that I've read about on Fodors?

I've also read that the CT is overrun with tourists from April to October and that it was much better before it was "discovered" by Rick Steves but it still is one of the places in Italy I'd like to visit.

Thanks for any comments about chosing to stay in Levanto rather than one of the Cinque Terre villages. Deborah
