doing a day trip to cinque terre from florence

Hello Guys!

Have did some researched and it seems to be entirely possible to do a day trip to Pisa and Cinque terre from Florence.

However i would like to seek for additional opinion on such itinenary or perhaps the best way to maximise the 4 nights that i will be spending in Florence.

Greatly appreciate for any kind suggestion

Grazie

It is possible, but you will spend a lot of time on trains. It takes at least an hour to get from Florence to Pisa, then another 90 minutes (or more) to get into the Cinque Terre.

If you will be visiting in June, July or August, I would strongly suggest you avoid the Cinque Terre. During the day, the villages will be crowded to the point of being unpleasant.

Four nights in Florence means 3 full days. Do the trip to Pisa on one day, and there is more than enough in Florence to keep you occupied for the other two days.

It’s doable if you make an early start. We’ve done it. 07.00 from Florence will get you to CT about 09.45, so you can have a few hours there - long enough to walk from, say, Vernazza to Monterosso.
