Siena to Monterosso

HI. We will be a group of 4 adults and one infant travelling from Siena to Monterosso in early June. We were going to drive to la spezia and take train but are now considering hiring a private transfer to take us directly to monterosso. Does anyone have any suggestions on companies/websites and/or know how much it might cost ?

Thanks!

If you're renting a car drop it off at the pisa airport (easy driving) take pisa mover to train station then train to monterosso. Car rental returns are less than a 5 min walk to airport (there is a shuttle if you do not want to walk) pisa mover is located next to terminal and drops you off at pisa centrale station. Easy. Even w an infant. We just did this (from orvieto) and it went very smoothly.

The first problem is going there in June because of suffocating crowds, made worse by frequent big cruise ships in port, some carrying more than 6,000 passengers.

Given that, #1 gives bad advice. Train time from Siena to Monterosso is 3.5 hours with 2 changes, the second one in Pisa [1:13 to Monterosso]. Drive to the airport would take around 2 hours, then returning it, getting to Pisa Centrtale for the next train, which run one hour apart. So all this a lot longer trip. Driving to La Spezia and dumping the car, taking the next train doesn't make sense either.

So if going, take the train, look up the cruise ship schedule.
