Just in the early stages of trying to plan a trip here for some walking. We've 4 nights with 1 in Pisa at the end. We won't have a car, just plan on using the train. We're basing ourselves in one place so we don't have to carry our luggage each day and plan on doing a range of walks from the coastal ones to the higher level ones - dependant on what trails are open.also want to see each town. Levanto (I realise this isn't in the actual NP) is looking best for accom that suits us so far and we can always train/boat it to the beginning of where we want to walk. Are we ok with trainers with good sturdy soles or are walking boots preferable. We walk in the lake district in the uk and always have boots if on the higher fells. Thanks for any info it'd be good if we can do hand luggage only on the plane!
