Cinque Terre- Which town to stay in?? 3 nights

Jump to last reply

I've been reading through a lot of the forums but having trouble deciding which town would be best for us so I thought I'd just start a new thread.

My husband and I will be there in August and are trying to decide which town to make our home base. We are in our mid-30s and while we aren't in to anything crazy as far as nightlife, we'd like the option of walking around in the evenings and not having everything be shut down once the sun goes down.

I've also ruled out Monterosso as we're not looking for a resort-type beach and it looks like the views we're after can be found in the other towns. (Also ruled out Corniglia). Beaches we are looking for are more of the out-of-the way ones, cliffs (to jump from!), snorkeling (?), etc. We aren't sunbathers.

Just want to pick the best place where we can get the amazing sea/village view, good food, with plenty of places to walk around town and look at. I understand that they are all pretty touristy, especially in August, so while I don't want to be right in the middle of the most touristy area, we definitely don't want to be in an area that is too quiet (husband tends to get antsy with too much relaxation time ;))

Thanks in advance, I know this was a long description!
