    You can definitely use the car and enjoy Tuscany but I would suggest that once you get to Cinque Terre that you leave the car and move along by train from here on.

    There is a direct two and a half hour train to Milan from Sestri Levante and also Levanto - a bit further away (there are very close to each other...do you know which one you want)

    I have taken this route (between Milan and Levanto - a great little town outside of Cinque Terre) and found it to be very convenient.

    You will find lots to see between Florence and Siena and Siena to Cinque Terre:

    Colle Val d'Elsa
    San Gimignano
    Pisa / Lucca

    Buon Viaggio,

    Agree with Donna on this - car for Tuscany, then no car from CT and onward, use trains as it will be more convenient -- and you don't need a car in either CT or Milan!
    You could do drop off in Pisa or Lucca or La Spezia and catch the train from there to CT/Levanto.
    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.
