Montecatini to Cinqe Terre day trip

We want to take a day trip to Cinque Terre from Montecatini Terme. Would the best solution be to train to La Spezia? I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

A train is the only way by public transport, but on some journeys you change trains at Sarzana rather than La Spezia. For train times and costs, see www.trenitalia.com/homepage_en.html using a travel date in the next 7 days to see costs on the local trains.

Unfortunately early morning connections are poor, e.g. leaving at 7.59 it's three hours to Riomaggiore with changes at Lucca, Pisa and la Spezia. For a later arrival, it is possible to reach Monterosso with only one change at Viareggio if you leave at 10.02.

To see connections on trenitalia websites, enter Montecatini Terme and the Cinque Terre village of your choice, as each has its own train station and there is a different pattern of services to each.

We just did this last week from Pescia, which is only a few stops from Montecatini on the Florence-Viareggio line. Total travel time to CT by train was around 2 hours each way. Driving to la Spezia might have saved us a half hour or so each way, but we preferred to avoid the hassle of driving and finfdin parking, etc. in La Spezia.
