Hi all, we're considering driving from Milan to Rome on 5th Jan 2011 along the coast. First stop Genoa for breakfast then along Cinque Tere. Lunch at Pisa and then all the way to Rome. We'll take our time to enjoy the scenery. Some body from Australia told me that we can not drive through Cinque Tere because there's no road. We have to catch the train. Is that true?
The questions are they good roads, well sign-posted to drive and what is the traffic like the day before Epiphany holiday? Please also recommend a hotel near central Rome with secure overnight parking (understand the ZTL zone, we could stay around Colosseum area). We need to drive to Fiucimino airport in the morning
