Lake Como, Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre?

Jump to last reply

We leave in less than 2 weeks. We fly into Milan and go up to Bellagio at Lake Como. Would a car be the way to go rather than the train. Then I didnt' know if we should drive to Venice and leave the car at the auto-park lot or return the car to Milan and take the train.

Going from Venice to Florence if we didn't rent a car how easy is it to go by train?

We have almost a week in Florence and planned to see the hill towns, like Sienna. We were told the best way to see those towns is by car. Is that true?

Is a day trip to the Cinque Terre a possibility while staying in Florence or is that too far. Again, would it be better to rent a car or go by train?

Sorry for all the questions but am trying to make this a great trip.
