Hello hello! Como-Cinque-Portofino-Firenze help!!

I need help to know what parts of this itinerary should be adjusted.

See Como Friday Day

Stay Como Fri night

Saturday--Either train to Switzerland and stay in como

OR saturday train to Milan, see milan stay in milan

SUNDAY train to Genoa, see genoa, train to portofino , train back to genoa to get luggage, train to Cinque Terre stay over night

MONDAY hike cinque terre then train to WHICH CITY? can you go straight to lucca or pisa?

TUESDAY see lucca/pisa-- We also want to drive around the hill towns/maybe take short coooking class? Where could I do this, and is their a tour or would we have to rent a car in la spezia on Monday and return in florence?

TUESDAY NIGHT stay in a hill town (presumably cheaper than Florence)

WEDS and THURSDAY florence and leave

THANK YOU !!!

Is this a vacation or an endurance test?

I suggest you to go to Rome on Thursday.

As everyone has suggested you will need to cut out a couple places to even have a chance of relaxation. Try this for an aggressive but doable itinerary:

Friday Como

Saturday Como

Sunday Travel Como to Cinque Terre

Monday Cinque Terre

Tuesday travel Cinque Terre to Pisa on way to Florence

Wednesday Florence

Thursday Florence

Ha ha ha ha. I thought the same. You won't be relaxed at any point in that holiday. I just did four days in Spello and Assisi, four days in Genoa and five days in Riomaggiore. I was knackered! Could have done with two weeks in Cinque Terre. My advice is to see less and relax more. Travelling is exhausting!

Have fun. x

Actually I wouldn't bother with Milan either given your other choices. I lived there for a year and its not the best place to visit. The architecture apart from Duomo is practically zilch compared to other towns and I found it to be fairly unfriendly compared to Genoa or Florence. Just my opinion. xx
