Hello my friend and I are traveling in May 2014 to Rome, Sorrento, Florence (with a day trip to Siena and Luca), then to Cinque Terre and then on to Venice. We think the latter train journey - CT to Venice- will take most of a day. Therefore we want to break the journey between cinque terre and venice and spend a day somewhere else. Can anyone suggest a nice place to stopover? I have been to Bologna before and am not keen to visit again. Thanks for your help.
