Perfect For Family & Friends
Looking for an Italian vacation like no other? When the flock to Florence, you stay on the Mediterranean Sea in your own Italian beach house. That is Casa Piki, and Bonassola a quintessential beach vacation near the famed Cinque Terre (just a stop or two on the local train). Most important for you and your group is that Casa Piki has these wonderful views over the coast and sea (especially from the terrace-like roof), and it's a 2 minute walk to town where bars, restaurants and fellow sun seekers enjoy a walk about, music and cafe.
Location, Price, Style
With a stylish beach house interior and really great prices, Casa Piki is perfect for a family and you don’t need a car here either.

2 Stops To Cinque Terre
You simply can't escape this page without a word or two on the popular area nearby known as "Cinque Terre,” the five charming fishing villages that lie between LEVANTO in the north and Portovenere to the south: Monterrosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. A place that used to be popular among Italian, but commonly among Germans, English and the increasingly adventurous American audience of Rick Steve's books and television specials (threatening the tranquility of this spot), Cinque Terre allows the traveler to embrace - literally - the mountains as they meet the sea via a hiking path which connects these humble villages. The main attraction here are not museums, historical duomo, piazza's and works of art. It's the fresh air, warm sea and often strenuous walk from village to village…which requires a purchasable pass. It’s a popular place due to Rick Steves.Touring Ideas:
