Means of transportation in Cinque Terre city

The fastest way to get to Cinque Terre is by boat. The boat schedule here runs very regularly, especially in the summer, lasting about 5 – 10 minutes each trip.

From big cities to Riomaggiore it takes about 7 – 9 minutes, to Manarola it takes about 20 minutes. Between Riomaggiore and Monterosso it only takes about 14 minutes by train. Of the 5 villages, only Corniglia village does not have a seaport, so visitors can still travel between the remaining four villages by boat.

If tourists buy a Cinque Terre Train Card, you will be able to travel comfortably on the La Spezia – Levanto trains. With this type of ticket, visitors can comfortably travel between routes, helping to save travel costs.

This place is also a paradise for tourists who love trekking because it has trails along the sea linking villages. However, trekking on hot summer days is quite tiring, so visitors need to prepare enough drinking water and a good pair of sports shoes.
