How to go from Florence to Cinque Terre ?

I plan to go from Florence to Cinque Terre and spend another one day in one of the 5 villages. Is there any direct train from Florence to CT? Which village I shld visit first so that I can go from CT back to Rome?

There is a direct train on summer Sunday mornings only. Otherwise change at Pisa and la Spezia, or less often only at Pisa (for Monterosso only) or only at la Spezia.

For train connections from Florence to any village, see http://www.trenitalia.com/homepage_en.html entering the village of your choice. Use a date this week to see all fares as most connections are by Regional trains for which fares are NA online more than seven days in advance. Buy Regional tickets at the station in Florence - using ticket machines avoids lines. Validate (time/date-stamp) tickets before boarding.

Monterosso is the furthest village from Florence. To Rome, there are direct trains from la Spezia which has frequent trains from all villages.

We drove in. Scariest experience of my life on the 2 lane roads built wide enough for on, tires on the edge of the cliff..... But if you are ok with that, most gorgeous beautiful mountain and sea views.

There's a Florence Cinque Terre one day excursion plan here that you can adapt: tuscanyitaly.info/cinqueterre/cinqueterre.htm Also a lot of useful info on the villages and walking tracks.
