transportation & accommodation- Santa Margherita, Cinque Terre, & Tuscany

Jump to last reply

I'm at the beginning of planning our Sept/Oct 2013 honeymoon (around 10-14 days). Our preliminary plan includes:
* flying into Milan and driving to Santa Margherita Ligure for a couple of days
* train to one of the CT towns (or right outside so we can spend the night and do the CT towns in a day hike)
* pick up rental car (in La Spezia possibly) and drive to Tuscany (haven't decided on a village in Tuscany to stay in yet)
* driving back to Milan to fly home from Tuscany

Does anyone have any input about best routes, best place to pick up a rental car for our time in Tuscany, which villages would be best to stay in (for both CT and Tuscany), and any good accommodations in these areas?

It's our honeymoon so we are willing to spend for good places. We are trying to focus on food, wine, and the culture of the smaller villages. We are very active people and don't mind hiking around to explore. In Tuscany we would really like to find a beautiful place to stay where we can eat family style with the owners and other guests.

Thank You!!
