Subject: milan, lucca, cinque terre
Hi Ziners,

We are planning to visit Milan,Lucca & the Cinque Terre in June. In Milan we are thinking of staying at the Hotel Spadari. From there will will train to Lucca where we have tentative plans to stay at the Albergo San Martino. We will then go the Cinque Terre region with thoughts of basing out of Hotel Porto Roca in Monterosso. We will have about 5 days there and I am trying to decide if we should split the time between Monterosso and Portovenere or Lirici. From there we will return to Milan for our flight back to Colorado (with an overnight stay at Hotel Cervo near Malpensa.)

Any thoughts on the above itinerary and hotels would be greatly appreciated. Also,we are planning to use the train as our chief means of trasportation, so information on the best routing and method of reserving seats would be very helpful.

Many thanks from Mary in Denver, Colorado
