šŸ‘‹ Hey, it's Kristina! I'm American born, though currently living in beautiful Liguria, Italy! I absolutely LOVE hiking and exploring beautiful locations. Portovenere is where I live in Italy (so I'm a local) and it has so much to offer! Together, we will explore Portovenere,La Spezia, and Le Cinque Terre! I'll guide you to all of the best restaurants, focaccia, bakeries (panificio), and gelato! We will also visit the landmarks, and take a walk through the castle! My dog, who goes on adventures with me, may be accompanying us. My husband (who is more of a local than I am) may also join for some of the activities, giving some recommendations (at no extra charge). He's an avid hiker, too! One additional benefit for this trip, is that since I already live in Portovenere, the accommodation will only be split between TripMates, excluding myself (so, more money saved!). Here's the details!... ā˜€ļø We will meet each morning with an itinerary for the day. There will also be downtime! šŸ›ļø Some bedrooms may be shared, though all TripMates will have their own bed. šŸ§­ We will be exploring La Spezia, Le Cinque Terre and Portovenere. I will guide you to the best food, landmarks, and viewpoints along the way! šŸ„¾ Moderate hiking will be involved in this trip. šŸ’¶ Included in the price: - Accommodation (likely shared rooms) - My fee for travel arrangements - Free JoinMyTrip insurance (for German and Austrian residents) ā­ All public transportation tickets, food, etc. will be paid separately and individually by tripmates, directly to the vender. In this way, I will not be charging fees for this. My suggestion would be to bring along some cash (Euros) to make paying easier! For buying transportation, I will suggest apps to tripmates.

šŸ˜Š A little more about me... I am very adventurous, have travelled all over Europe, the United States, the UK, other parts of North America, and some of the Caribbean. I am very well versed, speak native english, and conversational Italian. I like to bring my dog (a border collie)! I love being active, as well as exploring cultures. I'm a remote worker, and enjoy taking trips without missing out on work. I also love guiding trips and meeting new people! I hope to meet more TripMates with similar interests!

Accommodations are subject to different types, and more information will be given upon trip mates booking the trip. In most cases, individuals will have their own rooms. In some cases, rooms may be shared, always with separate beds (unless with a partner). If there are any special requirements you have, please let me know before hand. Accommodation is included in the price of the booking. Your ID and name may be necessary upon check-in. All nights will spent at the same accommodation in La Spezia, as La Spezia will serve as the city with main transportation to the other cities. Any questions about the trip? You can let me know in the Q&A section!

Trip Itinerary

La Spezia

Day 1-2
La Spezia is the province in which Portovenere lies. It is the main city, full of shops, restaurants, Pasticcerie, bars and liveliness! There is a beautiful sea boardwalk and much to explore. La Spezia also fosters amazing seafood, and is where the main train station to others areas will be located. La Spezia and all of its glory is one of the largest ports in Italy!

Cinque Terre National Park

Day 2-3
Le Cinque Terre (The Five Lands) are a historic and national park withing Ligurian Italy. On this day, we'll start by visiting what I believe are the most beautiful of the lands. Time willing, we will visit all 5 lands! The landscapes and vies from this area are phenomenal, and the water so clear!

Porto Venere

Day 3-4
We will be exploring the city of Portovenere, taking a hike between Portovenere and Le Grazie. I'll point out a nice lunch spot. You'll see the beautiful sea line of Portovenere and San Pietro, the historic church.
