How to reach La Conchiglia
- By car:
From the car park overhanging the town there are two possibilities, since the centre of the town is forbidden to cars, motorcycles and scooters.
The first possibility is walking down for about 200 metres along the main road until you reach Via di Loca on the left side after a souvenir shop.
The walk from the car park to the apartment will take you about 5 minutes.
The second possibility is waiting in the car park or calling by phone (+39 0187-921016 or +39 348-3162474 or +39 349-1848405) a minivan of the National Park of Cinque Terre which will transfer you and your luggage at very low prices until Via di Loca with a stop in a small panoramic square equipped with a children playground (last lap reachable by car).
