How much time will you have to spend?? Riomaggiore in CT is about 90 minute train ride from Livorno. You could visit all 5 of the towns if you haven't already. Pisa and Lucca are nice also.

Hi,

If you hire a driver you do have plenty of options from Florence. How long do you have before getting back onboard the cruise ship ??

Sienna - approx 1 hr drive from Florence.

Pisa - approx 1.20mins from Florence

Lucca - approx 1hr

Cinque Terre - approx 2.5hrs

For trains - Train connecting Florence, Pisa and Lucca www.trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

Been to Sienna and Pisa. We are off a cruise ship and it takes 1 1/2 hour just to get to Florence from port. Would like to go from port by train or hire a driver and not go into Florence. Any ideas?

Can we go from the port with a driver or on the train to Cinque Terre without going all the way into Florence?

I assume you're speaking of the port in Livorno? From the port in Livorno to Riomaggiore, the southernmost village in CT, would take you about 90-100 minutes by train. You would change trains in La Spezia.
