Looking for Input on LIgurian Trip

jen kalb | | Aug 23, 2012 07:37 AM

We will be spending 8 days in Liguria - split between Chiavari (actually, Lavagna) and Genoa - in October. We will not have a car on this trip.

Ive read the existing threads (big thanks to barberinibee, Erica and others) and also the books (downie, Plotkin, Coleman Andrews, etc etc). We will have a day trip to Camogli to visit the Monte Portofino and also Nonna Nina and maybe a day trip to the Cinque Terre to walk some of the coastal trail to see what all the fuss is about.

Wondering if there are any new Chowhound recommendations in this area? Has anyone been to La Brinca in Ne? Thats solidly on my itinerary. Any input about Axillo, Bruxaboschi or Ruscin in Genoa? Any suggestions for lunch if we take the little Casella train out of Genoa for a day? We will be staying near Corso Magenta in Genoa - any recommendations up there? We know about La Funicolare there.

Finally, we will be in Pisa at lunchtime on our way north from Rome - where will we find a good meal there (near the historic sites)
