Arriving and moving by train

Every village of the Cinque Terre can be reached by car, but it will take you a lot of time to reach your final destination.
Moreover, their are big parking problems.
That's why we recommend you to make use of the trains. The Cinque Terre can be reached by TRAIN with the line Ventimiglia-Genoa-Rome. Every village of the Cinque Terre has a railway station which is in the center of the village (the only exception is Corniglia).
There are a lot of trains which connect the stretch La Spezia - Levanto, and the local trains stop in each of the five centers. The Intercity trains (the mean of transport for those who are coming from the big Italian cities or from abroad) stop usually at Levanto, Monterosso al Mare and La Spezia.
From these stations you can move without problems with the local trains.
Who wants to go to Portovenere has to get off the train at the railway station of La Spezia Centrale in order to then take the autobus for Portovenere.
Attention: There are some autobus which depart directly from the railway station, however, most of them depart from the center of La Spezia close to the "Piazza del Mercato".
For precise time schedules and information, consult the site of the Italian railways.
