Swapping out Amalfi for Cinque Terre? Hotel base?

Jump to last reply

So, I keep joking that planning these two weeks in Europe is like one big focus group. We keep going back-and-forth and changing our minds about itineraries based on many variables. Other than our flight to Barcelona and our flight back to the United States nothing is in stone. We haven't been to Cinque Terre in 10 years and I can get a multi city on Alitalia ( we decided we do not want to deal with Ryanair or Vueling in the end with all the up charges etc) from Barcelona to Milan and then Milan to Rome and then back to Barcelona to head back to NYC. 245 dollars. Not bad at all.

We could drive from Milan to Rome with stops in Cinque Terre and Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside etc (again, we have done this before in the past but our 11-year-old and our parents haven't seen it).

Cinque Terre doesn't seem to have the luxe factor that Amalfi Coast has. I actually remember loving this about it. But will I get my fill of "mare" here? Also, there don't seem to be that many resort type places in the area. Last time I was there I stayed above a pizzeria in Monterosso! Should we stay in a nearby town and just go to Cinque Terre for a day or two? Will I be able to get a beautiful boat tour there like Lucibello and Gennaro e Salvatore in Positano etc? Swapping out Alamfi makes the trip easy because we are traveling in one direction now: South. And will end up in Rome which is where our flight back to Barcelona will be.

With Amalfi in the picture, we would have to fly to Rome since flights to Naples are so expensive and not nonstop on better air carriers , and drive down and then back up for flight back to Barcelona from Rome. We've spent hours looking at the airfare. One way. Multi city. Round trips etc. We also want to do our best to avoid the two aforementioned airlines.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Lisa
