    Where is Cinque Terre?

    Hi, Cinque Terre is a national park in Italy. I am not sure how you are traveling there, but the most efficient way I believe to get there is by train. These are the five cities that make up Cinque: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. Trains run right through all of these places, which makes it easy to jump from one city to the next. I recommend doing some research and start with the city you want to go to first beacuse I have no idea of your timeline while in Cinque, and there is a lot to see. Be prepared its very hilly so wear some comfortable walking shoes and pack light. There are many beautful places to stay in Cinque Terre, I would use the hostel world website or app to find a great place to stay. That website has a lot of reviews and pictures to aid you in deciding where to stay. I hope this helps. I just studied in Italy for a semester. about 5 years ago

    Recommendations for an inexpensive but nice place to stay in Venice away from all the tourists and noise.

    I just finished a study abroad in Italy and I think the best place to stay in Venice was in the accademia district of Venice. It was very quiet and it is where many locals live. It is very close to San Marcos but far enough away from the tourists. We used the AirBnB website and rented an apartment. about 5 years ago

    Where are some areas of Rome to avoid? I'm trying to find a compromise between cheaper hotels and dangerous areas.

    STAY AWAY FROM THE ROMA TERMINI TRAIN STATION AREA! It was very sketchy at night and during the day. about 5 years ago
