Cinque Terre Express train line
Visiting Cinque Terre by Cinque Terre Express train is the best option to visit the five villages and other towns along the Ligurian coast.
It is cheaper, faster and it runs often, especially during high season. You can buy single tickets directly at the train station and, once validated in the gray-green machines, use them for 75 minutes.
The rate is 4€ for any train trip in between La Spezia and Levanto. When coming from a village outside this line, from Bonassola for instance, you’ll have to purchase a train ticket to Levanto and then a train ticket for the Cinque Terre Express Line (1.80€ + 4€).
From 8.00 p.m. the rate is 2.40€.
Cinque Terre Card
However, if you plan to take more than four trains in a day or to hike along trail n°2 and use the bus service to the hamlets and shrines, the best option is the Cinque Terre Card.
It includes unlimited train travels during the day, the admission to museums in the city of La Spezia, buses in the National Park and access to the hiking trails. In the back of the card you also get a 24h free wifi code to be used at Info Points and train stations.
It lasts one day (16 €) or two days (29 €) and can be purchased at our front desk all day long, in order to avoid the queue at the train station! You’ll get all the needed information on the dedicated post.
!!! Both the Cinque Terre Card and the single train ticket need to be validated in the gray-green machines placed in the waiting area and underground corridor before getting on the first train!
You’ll also have to write your name and family name on the back of the card and carry your ID card.
