Affittacamere Le Farfalle B&B review, La Spezia, Italy

I had been thinking about visiting Cinque Terre for quite a long time, and one day in December just remembered about it and started planning a spring trip. Cinque Terre is a busy place so it’s best to plan a visit about 6 months in advance to have your pick of the accommodation. I’d read LaSpezia was a good starting point for a Cinque Terre adventure, so I searched for accommodation there and soon came across the Affittacamere Le Farfalle Bed and Breakfast at I booked it because of the excellent feedback, pictures and price.


The three room B&B is located on the main street of La Spezia, some 5 minutes from the railway station and about 15 minutes from the boat station.

There’s no formal reception so to get the warm welcome of the hostess, Patrizia, travelers make prior agreements about their arrival. Our communication worked out fine even though I knew my exact arrival time only three hours in advance.


My room was spacious, clean, had a kettle, tea, coffee, some sweets and free wifi.

Breakfast included, with delicious coffee from a coffee machine, only pre-packed food offered due to restrictive regulations.
Advantages: A truly great hostess, Patrizia provided me with a printed map and tourist information about the area, and suggested including Porto Venere into my itinerary. It proved to be the best advice I could have had.
