In Sept 2018 my husband and I (70, and 64) will be finishing a bike tour of northern Italy at the north end of Lake Garda. We have about a week then to visit some areas of Italy where we have not been before. We are thinking of Cinque Terre or Amalfi Coast. Any advice as to which would be more pleasant for a few days touring, walking and dining? We have previously done much of Tuscany, Rome, Venice, Verona etc. How would you recommend that we travel: train or rental car? Where would be the best place to select hotel so that we can center our activities?
I know this is a broad question but the rest of the vacation is very structured and would like this part a bit more "free-flowing".
I appreciate any advice you can share with me.
