Hi, our first trip to Italy, we are staying 5 nights in Motecatini Terme, last evening near Milan airport. Goals are : Florence, Cinque Terrre, Pisa. Those are the musts for our group, my husband and me, our daughter and her girls (our granddaughters, their first trip abroad, they are so excited) ages 10 and 16. We do have a car that comes with the package and will be driving from Milan to Montecatini Terme (yes, I know it's far). Planning on using the trains most of the other times. Problems : getting conflicting info on drive time compared to train especiallly to Cinque, we were thinking of driving to La Spezia, paying to park for day and take train from there into Cinque. I thought this because I read the train trip was almost 3 hours one way from Montecatini to Cinque, is that actuallly true ? THe less driving, the bettter.Also cannot find train schedules on Trenitalia,Help ? Are crowds going to be terrible that fist week of May ? Any and alll input apppreciated.
