Florence to Cinque Terre

Jump to last reply

We're going to Italy for a week in early June. We were told to hit up the main three cities, so we are attempting to visit Rome, Florence and Venice. We know there are so many more things to see so it seems that another trip to Italy is evident in the distant future. However, during this trip I really want to try to see Cinque Terre. Is it possible to go to Cinque Terre from Florence, and if so what is the most efficient route? I have looked into several options and it seems it will take at least 2.5 hours by train one way, which I think is too much for a 1.5 day trip to Cinque Terre. I also don't know if we should spend more time in Florence and cut down that time in Cinque Terre. Anyway, we will have a car but I have read that we should not drive to Cinque Terre, but is there a good option to park in one of the nearby towns if coming from Florence? I just want to consider all my options before I cancel going to the CT because of the inconvenience.

Thank you so much for your help!
