My husband and I stayed at Niria for a delayed honeymoon and so much enjoyed it. Previous notes were helpful - Niria is not in a "happening" town by any means...its actually so quiet that its loud...but so refreshing!! We took the train from La Spezia to Manarola, then caught the green shuttle up the hill to Volastra...the shuttle picks up on a random schedule that you can pick up at the La Spezia station..just up the hill from the Manarola train station...go through the tunnel just up the hill near the post office on the left. Last shuttle was something like 7:30 up the hill and we couldn't have imagined lugging our luggage up there. There is a small grocery store and small restaurant in Volastra. We went out to eat at Dal Billy in Manarola...walked down the hill and then called for a ride home! I've never seen the Sea from that vantage point - truly a once in a lifetime experience. And you can hop right on the upper train from Manarola to the next twon over right outside the door practically form NIria.
