Subject: lucca, milan cinque terre
Dear Ziners,

Thanks for the reminding me of the beauty of Santa Margarita. I haven't been there in over 25 years and your recommendations have reminded me of the awesome beauty of this lovely town. I think that we will use Monterossa as a base and travel up and down the coast from there.

I am still struggling with train routing from Milan to Lucca and then from Lucca to Cinque Terre. There obviously are not any direct trains so what is the best city to connect through (Pisa, La Spezia)? Also, is the better to travel by train from Milan to Lucca, Cinque Terre and then back to Milan for departure to the states or Milan, Cinque Terre, Lucca, Milan ?

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
