We are a party of 4, one 58, rest in the 60's. We are all quite fit, but not fit enough to walk from village to village. We plan to go by train from one village to the next, getting down at each village, seeing the place, then going on to the next one. We will be based in Florence. Can we do this as a day trip from Florence? If we HAVE to stay overnight closer to Cinque Terre to do justice to the place, where do you recommend we stay overnight? La Spezia? Levanto? or in one of the Cinque Terre villages themselves? If so, which one would you recommend? Any advice would be most welcome! By the way, we will be in Florence towards the end of September, for three or four days.
Thanking you in anticipation, and with regards
