We want to go from Venice to the Cinque Terre in late Aug/early Sept 2008 for 2 nights. What's the quickest way - train or fly to Genova or Pisa and then train into CT? Only flights I found changed in Rome and we don't want to do that as after the CT we will be going to Rome. From CT thought we could go to San Gimignano for 1 night. I wanted to get a taste of Tuscany country side. Can we train there from CT? Then from there go onto Rome on train. Am I trying to do way too much in a short time? Should we stay in CT for 3 nights and go from there onto Rome on train and skip San Gimignano? If so, will we see Tuscany country side on the way or can I go down the coast. We are in ok shape, however we are in our late 50's. Am I trying to run us ragged? We want to have 2 nights in Rome and then we leave on a 10 night Mediterraen cruise. I'm getting webbed out researching this trip so much. Thanks to anyone who can give us advice from experience.
