There seems to be conflicting information on the Cinque Terre Card (the one that combines the trails and transportation). Someone mentioned that Rick Steve’s website states that the transportation portion is no longer available—are they just not bundled together any longer? Someone else that just returned from CT wrote that the CT Card is still available.
1. Are there still passes for the local trains?
2. Are they still combined with the hiking trails?
3. If still available, does the train pass cover La Spezia too?
Do I need to book ahead the train from La Spezia to Vernazza, or plan on buying a ticket, or a 3 day pass upon arrival in LS?
Thank you for helping clear up the confusion!
