My son and I are flying into Milan in early May and plan to spend the first 2 days of our 7 night trip in Cinque Terre. We will be tired from the long flight and plan to take the train to either Levanto or Monterrosso. We need either a room with two beds or a small apartment/suite for 2 nights to use as our base to explore CT. Does anyone have a suggestion as which would be the better location? I also welcome suggestions for reasonably priced accommodations.
After CT, we plan to take the train to Pisa for the day.
From Pisa, the plan is to either
1) rent a car and explore the Sienna/Chianti area for a few days then finish up with 3 nights in Florence, or
2) Stay in Florence for the remainder of the trip and take day trips to the Tuscany villages.
We fly out of Florence. I am just starting to work on the itinerary so open to all ideas.
