Visitors to the area are constantly growing, especially day trippers coming from cruise ships mooring in La Spezia. Recently Regione Liguria and Trenitalia tried to improve the train service to the famous five villages adding a number of extra trains and scheduling trains departure from La Spezia to Levanto every 30 minutes during peak hours. They called it Cinque Terre Express.

Here the schedule of the Cinque Terre Express valid form April 23rd, 2016. Just click on following pictures, enlarge or print the schedule. A useful tool when visiting the Cinque Terre. Do not leave without it. But in case you forgot it, do not panic, most of the train station office have these schedule sheet to give you

PLEASE, NOTE!

You can see the trains are serving the area are a lot, but since the tracks running along the coastline are just 2, well, sometimes a train is cancelled and other trains, due to the crowd jumping on and off, delay their departure. So delays on the line are expected. If you have connections or flights  to catch consider to leave with a large advantage of time. 

The effectiveness of this service organization is yet to be proved, since it started mid-April. Against an increased number of trains serving the Cinque Terre vilages from la Spezia and Levanto, we see a fragmentation of the coastal route. Passenger travelling to Genoa, for instance, are now asked to face now longer trips to reach the Ligurian capital, not to speak to reach Milan or Turin. When departing from Vernazza or Manarola they have to stop in Levanto, then in Sestri Levante and then, hopefully, they can reach Genoa.

But the area is not easy and we all hope that all eventual issues with our train servoce won’t change your opinion on the Cinque Terre, one of the most amazing places on earth!
