Subject: Itinerary Help--Venezia to Cinque Terre
Dear Jeannie, In October, we took the trains from Venezia to Cinque Terre, but spent a few days in Florence along the way. We did change trains in Pisa, but did not sightsee this time in Pisa. We stayed in Levanto, the town west of Monterosso in Cinque Terre. We really loved it. It was less touristy, had a beautiful waterfront, great restaurants and views. The hike from Levanto to Monterosso was fabulous. (We took the train back to Levanto). You can day trip to Portofino from there by train also. When we left Levanto, we took a direct train to Milan, where we ended our trip. I hope this will help you in your planning. Donna in Pittsburgh
