day trip to cinque terre

We will be in Florence for 4 nights, and we would like to do a day trip to Cinque Terre. What is the best way to travel there to get the most of our limited time. Driving, small tour group, hire a driver or taking the train?

Hello LA

In CT you don't use the car but trains - boats - walking to travel

between the towns

If you leaving early from Florence at 7.52 to La Spezia arriving

at 9.52 From La Spezia take train at 10.00 (1* platform) to Rio

maggiore (first town CT) walking to Manarola and to Corniglia and to Vernazza and to Monterosso (of course you stop when tired)

take the boat to Portovenere and there the bus to La Spezia

Come back by train to florence

I planning a full day you cut what you like

have a great time

Thank you Mino. When you say full day, if we followed your itinary, what time do you think we would get back to Florence?

Also, could you recommend a nice place for lunch?

Thank you for your help!!

Hello Luanne

You don't say if you like walking or only visit

To visit - from Riomaggiore walking the "lover path" visit Manarola

and walking to Corniglia (2 hours) take the train to Vernazza visit

and lunch (every restaurant here is good - Have 10 )

Take the boat to Monterosso or train (every hour) come back

. From La Spezia to Florence have train at 18.00 about or

at 19 about directly to florence : can you skip Portovenere

anyway look at www.trenitalia.com
