Check train departures from Vernazza to Florence from 05.00

journey time is three hours, and similar by taxi.

You may consider staying in Florence the night before, in case of any transport delays,

There is a 9 am train to Pisa and then cross under in Pisa to another track and get the train direct to Firenze. Very Simple!

You cannot get to Florence from Vernazza in sufficient time for an 11 am flight allowing for transfer to the airport and check-in. You must stay overnight in Florence (or maybe Pisa).

Not only that a night in a hotel should be a good deal cheaper than a taxi as La Spezia to Pisa is 150 euro
