    Default Florence,pietrasanta and cinque terre

    We are in Tuscany for 6 days in September, flying into Pisa (not wishing to spend any time there as already seen it) on a Wednesday and out again on the following tuesday. We have a wedding pietrasanta on the Saturday but either side would like to do cinque de terre and Florence. We are 3 adults and an 8 month old! For ease I would imagine we will hire a car from Pisa.

    Does anyone have any advice about what order to do things in, how to travel or where to stay? Thanks so much!

    If you're planning on renting a car, I would suggest doing it this way:

    - arrive in Pisa, take BUS to Florence -- stay in the historical center, NO CAR required while you're in Florence. No worries about parking or driving in wrong part without permit.

    - head back to coast for wedding, rent CAR in Florence as you leave city - there are car rental agencies near the SMN train station (read this: http://www.visitflorence.com/florence-car-rental/ )

    - wedding and then head on to CT - with car, the easier towns to manage to drive and park are Riomaggiore and Monterosso, the both extremes of the 5 towns.

    As for specific places to stay, I suggest you start browsing through
    www.florenceaccommodation.com and www.tuscanyaccommodation.com!
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.

    Default where to go in CT


    Have a look at the articles at the link, the individual city pages talk about which towns have some of the best areas for parking: https://www.discovertuscany.com/cinque-terre/
