We are five adults and two....bambini's....4 and 1 years old traveling in two cars. We will be staying in Lucca and taking day trips to places in the region.
One place we really want to see is Cinque Terre. I've seen confusing information in the forum about driving to CT. Some say drive to La Spezia and take the train from there. Others say avoid the place. One said drive to Lavanto and park there. Where is the best place to drive to and park to see the rest of CT?
Also, we would like to go by boat for some of our tour just to see the coast line and view from the water. Is this a good idea? Any idea of cost and is it best to book ahead of time?
You people are so knowledgable and helpful. Thank you ahead of time for your suggestions.
