Transportation between Venice, Florence, Lucca, Padua, & Cinque Terre- HELP!
We are planning a trip that will have us spending 2 days in Florence, 2 days in Venice, 1 day in Lucca, 1 day in Padua, and 4 days in the Cinque Terre (not necessarily in that order). What is the most efficient (time-wise) way to get from one to the other? We hope to fly into either Rome or Milan, and are NOT renting a car. We plan on buying cheap train tickets. I'm getting overwhelmed with options and need some guidance. :) Thank you!
