I've booked 3 nights stay in Venice and two nights in La Spezia (for Cinque Terre).
I've had a look at Trenitalia and see that I can get to La Spezia either via Milan or via Florence. Can anyone advise re the best way to go and/or leave La Spezia? Times and distances on each route look similar.
Also, do I need to pre-book these Intercity trains? Some say yes, others say just buy at the railway station before you board?
Thanks for your rail travel tips.
