Travel to Cinque Terre

We will be on a cruise next June and to avoid expensive shore tours I would like to plan my own day. Definately would like to go to Cinque Terre we arrive 7am and depart 9pm. There are 6 of us! Should we hire a car (which is expensive too) or what?? Any suggestion appreciated!

Train fares from Genova Piazza Principe to Monterosso start at €9.50 per person each way, though the more expensive Intercity at 9.47 for €11 would be a better outward option. For all times and fares to and from Monterosso and the other four Cinque Terre villages, see http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en Use a current date for your research, as next year is not yet available.

Walk to Piazza Principe Station and take a train. Prices and trip duration varies from 9.50 euro to 15.50 euro and from 1h.18 minutes to 2h.09 minutes depending on which train is running on your desired departure time.

Download trenitapp which is very useful for departure times, connections, possible routes and departure platform numbers.

If I had one day I would make sure I saw Vernazza and might do the trail from Vernazza to Corniglia to Manarola. See my tips and our experience here: https:/…
