TRAVEL FROM GENOA TO ROME

by paddyanne

We are disembarking from the cruise ship in Genoa. We have a one night reservation in Vernazza. We want to spend a short time in the Cinque Terre.
Where can we store our luggage outside of our reservation time? Is there any train station where we can store our bags? Is it easy enough to take the train between the 5 towns? We also want to carry on to Rome via Pisa and Florence. Where is the best place to get a train schedule. I have tried Italia Rail and cannot find a train into Vernazza. Can we take the train to Florence with a stopover in Pisa (again being able to store our luggage?)
Thanks

here is the train site - plenty of trains to vernazza and cheap - maybe 5 euro

it is very easy to catch the train between the 5 towns - but not all trains stop at every station so check the schedule

the smaller stations don't have luggage storage - i am almost sure vernazza won't have it but i will try to find out

according to this site none of the 5 towns have depositi bagagli

la spezia centrale has which may be your best option - both stations at genoa have too

Most hotels will store your baggage for you prior to check-in. Can you go to Vernazza first to drop your luggage, and then see what you can before dark? Not sure what time you disembark from the ship.

Jen and Kate have already answered most of your questions...let's see...

Oh, Italia Rail is a travel agency, not the official rail website (Jen gave you the real one above). Most travel agencies don't show all trains; in particular, they don't tend to show regional trains which are trains for which you cannot make a reservation...however nearly all the trains that are convenient to the Cinque Terre are regional trains...so the Italia Rail site is of no use to you.

As for Pisa, Pisa Centrale has a Left Luggage office (Deposito Bagagli), where you check your luggage in while going off to see the sights...Italy has very few if any luggage lockers anymore.

So, the answer to your last question is that it is perfectly possible to leave one of the Cinque Terre, go down to La Spezia (the odds are very high that you will have to make a connection there to go to the rest of the country), then go from La Spezia to Pisa, drop your luggage at the office, go see the sights, come back to the station, pick up your luggage, then take a regional train to Florence (I think all trains between Florence and Pisa are regional trains)...

Travel Tips for La Spezia

Gulf of the poets

by matcrazy1

.
The city is located at the center of the La Spezia Gulf called often "Golfo dei poeti" = Gulf of the poets.

Much more interesting then the city itself are its surroundings: Lericia, Portovenere and the Cinque Terre - look at the picture, I don't have a plane (yet :-), the pic is from the net.

See the Cinque Terre .You can...

by chrissyalex

See the Cinque Terre .You can see it by train,sea,or foot or a combination of the three. Le Cinque Terre means the five lands.The five towns are Riomaggiore,Manarola,Corniglia,Vernazza,and Monterosso.
Here is Riomaggiore. It is the first town you will encounter if you are traveling from La Spezia. We arrived there by boat and would you believe that it is so rustic,that the boat let us off on basically a huge rock!

Manarola and Riomaggiore of Cinque Terre

by AlexDJ

Towns of Manarola, built on a rock outcrop, and Riomaggiore are linked by a footpath cut out of the sheer rock just few meters from the sea; this romantic pathway, called Via dell'Amore (love street), is dedicated to lovers and offers you a stunning sight of the gulf.

A lucky find

by zulu9

I found La Spezia to be a great place to wander around and savor Italian life without the tourist crowds of more famous places. There aren't any great museums or cathedrals here. Just simply a nice place to get to know Italy.
