Getting to Cinque Terre from Florence


If you drive into Florence you can take the train from there---or you could catch the same train you would in Florence but, at Pontedera. The drive from San Gimignano to Florence or to Pontedera is the same - except your train ride will be an hour LESS from Pontedera. Be sure to check the train you pick - some will have you change in Pisa and some have no changes (it is less confusing to get the no changes - but they are less frequent)

Have a look at this link to see more information about getting to and around Cinque Terre:
