Cinque Terre for Three Days / Two Nights

Jump to last reply

I posted an earlier message regarding a 6 day Tuscan stay based out of Pisa at the end of September. Everyone was incredibly helpful in confirming that our original plan of day trips to Greve, Siena, and San Gimignano was probably too much time in the car, especially for such a shortened time. Thank you so much for that feedback. I guess we'll put those destinations on our list for our next visit!

After a little more research, we think that our 6 day itinerary will now consists of Pisa (2 days), Lucca (1) and Cinque Terre (3). I'm curious if some of the well traveled (such as Bob the Navigator) think this is a much more desirable itinerary. Cinque Terre appears to be about an hour from Pisa via train and appears to be an incredibly beautiful place - even more so than San G, Greve, etc.

We're open to lots of suggestions on Cinque Terre. Since we're only there for two nights, we thought we would stay in one of the villages - probably Vernazza. I've heard that it's the most touristy village, but possibly the most beautiful. Any lodging or restaurant recommendations? It's our delayed honeymoon, so we don't mind treating ourselves with accommodations and culinary delights. Do you recommend another village instead?

Our Cinque Terre itinerary seems pretty easy. Hiking the trails over three days, with lots of stops to take in the beauty, culture and surroundings. Nights will probably be pretty low-key dinner and cocktails, especially after the day's activities. We just want to enjoy the region and take it all in.

Thanks again in advance for your feedback and thoughts!
Bill
