We will be staying in Lucca in early July and thought a day trip to Cinque Terre would be wonderful. I understand it would be best to catch a train in La Spezia to Cinque Terre. Does anyone know how to get to the train station there? Is there parking available? There would be 5 adults and two bambini's, 4 and 1 in two cars. Any idea of what the train would cost? Are we nuts to try to do this with the kids along? Any idea of what the boat trips cost up and down the coast? Am I just an idiot for asking all these questions? ( Please don't answer the last one.)
Any information you could give would be appreciated.
