If you had time for only one more city to visit in Italy (besides Rome, Venice, and Florence), would you pick Cinque Terre, Sorrento, or Naples?

Also, should I spend more time in Florence or Venice?

Thanks!

If you're into hiking or scenery, go with Cinque Terre. If you like ancient ruins, go to Naples (nearby sights of Pompeii, Herculanaeum, Paestum near Salerno). As for Sorrento, I'd actually base myself out of there for the above ancient sights rather than Naples. Naples is a big, noisy city that is somewhat intimidating to folks. Sorrento is smaller, quieter, and more accessible.

Of course, my opinions only...

Cinque Terre would be my pick, because I love hiking and the whole outdoorsy thing. Sorrento is a nice too though
