Genoa to Rome

by paddyanne

Thanks for all of the input. Some great ideas.
I checked out the site for train travel. I am not sure if reservations are required or not but I did fine times into Vernazza. Can you buy the tickets right at the station, or do you need them ahead of time. I also understand that you can get a pas for Cinque Terre trains. Are they available right there, as well?
Our ship docks in Genoa at 9 am, so we should have no trouble getting a train.
Overnight in Vernazza, check out the next day and travel to La Spezia or to Monterosso to secure our luggage and then go back through the towns. Is that feasable? We would then carry onto Florence.

"regional" trains (marked as "R" under Category on trenitalia.com) do not accept reservations. Regional trains are sort of like a bus: you arrive at the station, buy a ticket, validate it, and get on, whether or not there is a seat for you.

Yes, there is also a pass for the Cinque Terre, but I'll let someone else find the many posts we have had on it (I'm off to bed ;-) )...

as noted above, Regional trains do not accomodate advanced booking/ reservation, and the ticket is kind of open-ended, i.e. you can use them whenever you wish to within a reasonable timeframe, until you validate your ticket from the platform. Ticket can be easily purchased from friendly Vending machines installed at majority train stations. Regional trains seldomly get fill-up, and if they do, one can still travel while standing in the alleys...

Other trains accept advanced booking and reservation, but usually they dont get fill-up, so there is a high chance one may get seat at the last moment.

As noted above, you really do not need to buy your tickets in advance.

Ticket machines are easy to use and have English language options. It is best to use cash, imo, as you might have problems with a 'foreign' credit card ...but in theory you should have no such problems.

If you buy a Cinque Terre pass (which you need if you want to walk the coastal path between villages) then transport is included. But if you do not want to walk any of the paths then it is daft to buy the pass...the train fares are only a euro or so between each village.

You can find fares between the villages in English here(and all other Italian times, details, fares):

http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

Here's the official information about CT passes:

http://www.parconazionale5terre.it/5terrecardsnuovo_2.asp?id_lingue=2

There are pdfs linked at the bottom with prices. the traincard is 8,50 per person per day. You need to check the Trenitalia site to see if you will actually pay that much....it will depend on your itinerary.

You can buy cards and passes at the stations, and at tourist info places in the CT....there is a proper CT info office in La Spezia station.

The one place where you may find a pass/card worthwhile is Corniglia, where the bus up/down to the station costs 3 euro...but you can walk if you like (very steep going up, lots of steps).

Travel Tips for La Spezia

Where am I?

by Sarita76

If you're a bit confused about locations and places, take a look at a map. As you can see, Cinque Terre are part of a National Park and the five famous villages are not far from La Spezia and Levanto.

Monterosso al Mare

by matcrazy1

.
The biggest village of Cinque Terre is Monterosso al Mare. It has a beach, also castle and a 17th century monastery containing some valuable works of art. It is the most touristy of the villages.

Cinque Terre

by micas_pt

My favourite "Must See" in La Spezia area was undoubtedly the Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre is the "name" for 5 beautiful fishing villages perched on top of cliffs and which can be reached by boat or by train. The "first" and the "last" of the five can also be reached by car, making them touristier and less attractive in my opinion. The five villages, going from La Spezia are: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Cornilia (not accessible by boat), Vernazza and Monterosso.

In La Spezia you may get the boat to visit the Cinque Terre. We got the boat at Porto Venere and it works as "hop on and off" accordingly to a timetable they provide when you buy the ticket. That way you can spend as much time as you want in any of the villages.

La Spezia

by jeffmartinartist

La Spezia is a large seaside town south of the Cinque Terre. At first glance this City seems very industrial especially if you arrive by car as we did in 2003. However there is much to do and see here and it is a very good base from which to explore the Cinque Terre as it is from the train station here you must change to a smaller train and can purchase you walking tickets for the Cinque Terre National Park.

The artist community is strong here with one of my favorite living artists Sergio Tedoldi calling this home. This is one of his works that hangs in a small café down the hill towards the town center from the station. (I have miss placed the address if anyone knows it could you email me)
