We will have a car for our whole trip in Italy. I know, I know...the trains are so convenient. It is our honeymoon and we just like the flexibility to explore and detour & not be puppets to schedules if that makes sense:) My main concern right now though is the drive from Lucca to Monterosso al Mare. How dangerous is this exactly? There seems to be mixed reviews perhaps that as long as we park the car in Monterosso and don't drive to any other towns in Cinque Terre, maybe it isn't that dangerous of a drive? Any truth to that notion? The reason I am considering doing the drive as opposed to parking the car in Lucca and taking a train is because from Cinque Terre we are heading to Lake Como. It would be a little bit of a backtrack if we had to go back to Lucca and depart for Lake Como from there. If we absolutely are crazy fools for driving to Monterosa Al Mare please let me know!! Thank you in advance for your help!
