Train to Cinque Terre from Milan or Pisa Airport

The nearest airport to Cinque Terre is the Pisa Airport. It is connected to Pisa's central rail station in just 5 minutes by the 'PisaMover', which is an airport-style shuttle train. From Pisa Central Station it is only about one hour to La Spezia on the southern end of Cinque Terre. Unless staying in La Spezia, you'll switch there to a local train (the "Cinque Terre Express") that stops in each of the small towns along the Cinque Terre, such as Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso. You may have difficulty finding a good flight to Pisa though. In that case, you should look to Milan, which has 3 large airports, Malpensa, Bergamo and Linate. The total travel time from any of these airports to Cinque Terre will be over 4 hours though. Upon arrival, the first step will be to get to Milano Centrale (Milan's Central Station). The best way to reach the rail station from Malpensa Airport is via the Malpensa Express Train, whereas from Bergamo and Linato you can take a shuttle bus. From Milan you can take a direct InterCity train to Monterosso, on the northern end of Cinque Terre, and to La Spezia, on the southern end. If not staying in one of those towns, just switch to the local rail at Monterosso. One other option is flying into the Florence Airport, which is connected to the city's train station by a direct tram line.
