"The Beautiful Bay of Lerici" Lerici by pigletsmom

Lerici Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 29 photos

Colorful houses of Lerici

I did not have a lot of time in Lerici, but I thought it was pretty, and I plan to go back in June. You can take a walk around the bay and visit other nearby towns set on the water. You can also take a tour of the medieval Castle of Lerici. Lots of seafood restaurants, and I bet Lerici is really beautiful at nighttime.

Lovely Scenery

Driving down to Lerichi you will see some wonderful Views of the Bay.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Pretty Seaside town very close to Cinque Terra & Sarzana
  • Cons:A little crowded and a little touristy
  • In a nutshell:Worth seeing if you're in the area
  • Last visit to Lerici: Oct 2002

    Thanks for a quick look at Lerici. Ma Kettle and I don't like the really touristy areas, so this looks perfect. Pa

    Bari was VERY run down near the waterfront. Hertz in Rome told us to watch our car carefully in Bari - it is a high crime area. Our guidebook said Bari used to have armed guards for tourists. Not the best part of Italy...what you have heard is correct.

    Hi Elissa, I have been to Liguria region many times but never been in these two cities you listed. Are they far from Genova?
