How far of walk is it from Villa Pitiana to the train station that would take us to Florence? Also, if we do not rent a car, what is the best way to get to the Cinque Terre from here? Thanks!
Thank you for answering, however it is possible to walk from the Villa Pitiani to the Sant'Ellero train station. It is approximately 4 miles down a windy road, and it took us approximately an hour to reach the station. The bus service from Donnini to the station is unreliable so we walked to the station one day, and we had the front desk arrange a car for us on another day (20 Euro). It was a nice walk, you just have to be careful because the road is so windy, and the shoulders are very narrow or non-existent.
