I am finding this forum so helpful, grateful for the wise advise people are sharing.
I have a question about cruise ship crowds in Cinque Terre (and also Pisa and Lucca). I read in Rick's book to check www.cruiseportschedules.com to see if there will be ships porting in La Spezia to know if it will be overrun with cruise people. That site shows nothing in La Spezia on our days, but two ships in Livorno on two of our days, as well as two in Genoa on one of those days. Does anyone know if this probably means there will be a ton of cruise people in CT on those days? And do they crowd Lucca as well, or not so much? Any tips are much appreciated!
