cinque terre
by train

For the ones that do not love walking, the train represents the best way to visit all the villages of the Cinque Terre. Until the end of the 19th Century these towns were completely isolated and reachable just on foot or by sea. In 1860 (works ended in 1874) it was built the first tunnel of this track connecting Genoa with La Spezia and crossing almost entirely all this territory through tunnels (32 tunnels were built here!). This means of transportation give the possibility to easily visit the 5 villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore

Local trains coming from Sestri Levante direction La Spezia or vice versa run from early morning till late evening and stop in each town: some national and international trains stop in Monterosso and Riomaggiore as well.
