Trip Report Back from two weeks in Tuscany, Cinque Terre

Jump to last reply

We returned just about three weeks ago from our 9 nights outside of Florence, and two nights at the Cinque Terre. I'm long overdue posting a trip report, but wanted to at least thank all of you who helped us plan our trip! I'll try to get on to post names of restaurants, towns, B&Bs, etc.

We stayed in Bagno e Ripoli, which is a small commune right outside of Florence, for 9 nights, and it was perfect for us since we don't mind driving, and we prefer small and quaint over a busy city. We did lots of day trips from there, and it was perfect as a door to the 222 Chianti route.

Because of all the flooding in Cinque Terre last fall, I cut our time down in this area, not sure of how 'open' it would be. As it turned out, everything was open, and we ended up doing the entire trail (with one long steep detour) in one very full full day. But we were able to do it in it's entirety, which was our dream, so that was good. We stayed in Levanto rather than one of the five towns, and even hiked from there to Montorosso our first evening there. Very easy to catch the train to any of the towns. Now that all is said and done, I wish I would have left our itinerary with at least one more day to spend in this wonderful and beautiful part of Italy.

Will post more later, feel free to ask questions if you have any!
