Cinque Terre/Nice or Almalfi Coast?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. I would love any advice you have for my family regarding a trip to Italy. My husband and I are traveling with our 2 year old and my parents (mid 60s). We are wondering 1) between Cinque Terre and Almalfi Coast which do you prefer? 2) do you think a particular town in either region is better for certain things? for us given our travel companions?

If we did Cinque Terre we were looking at Monterosso for 4-5 days (because of the beach for the little one) and then renting a car in La Spieza and driving to the Nice area for another 3 days (I especially liked the looks of Eze). A train ride of 5-6 hours is not something I would look forward to with a toddler. If we did this itinerary, do you recommend Eze? Another spot outside of Nice with a little room to roam and experience less busy city and more local town?

If we did the Almalfi coast, what is a less visited but still amazing spot that would work well for us? From there, is there a region you would recommend for the second leg of our trip? Naples? Island?

Or surprise me....give me your dream itinerary (given our limitations with toddler, et al) on the coast.

So many hugs for all the responses. You guys are the best :)
