Cinque Terre on November 1

Hi! Will it be worthwhile taking a trip to Cinque Terre on the 1st of November 2013 despite it being a National Holiday in Italy? Will the trains be in operation from Florence to Cinque Terre? Will shops and restaurants be open on that day? Thanks in advance for your help.

As this is a village dependent on tourism, things (aside from post offices and banks) stay open for holidays - the only thing you might run into is that at the end of October in the Cinque Terre, things close down not for the holiday but for the winter. Many places will close on Nov 1 - but it's also weather dependent. If there is another really warm fall, you might have some places stay open a week or so later. Trains will be in operation.

Thanks cm28 for your quick reply. In your opinion, should we go ahead with the trip on November 1? It will just be for the day then we head back to Florence.

If you have the time and desire to do a day trip here, you might luck out with (like I mentioned) unseasonably warm weather and a lot less tourists, so you would actually have what I would think to be a better trip. I'd say it's worth it, but if you can wait to plan that far out, maybe see what the forecast is the days before coming and deciding.
