How to get there from the Nice area??Help pls

We plan to stay in Villefranche sur Mar (near Nice). We don't want to have a car. Is it easy to get from Nice to Cinque Terre? If so, how do we do it using public transport please? And how long would it take to get from Nice to CT? In CT is it best to base yourself in 1 town, and go to the others - how do you do this? walking? or are there buses? Thansk very much in anticipation for some feedback. Jeanette

Hello Jannette

from Nice to CT (la spezia) there are direct train to ROME . You go down in La Spezia and every hour you find the train to CT.(it take 5 to 20 minute)In Vernazza where I live there aren't bus the same in other village.

Only shuttle bus connect the village with the parking-car

From Nice to La spezia it take 5--6 hour . Can you look www.trenitalia.it

Here you use train --boat-walking--hiking--swimming and so on

good stay mino

Actually, you can go from Nice to Monterosso in the CT which is the same train that continues to La Spezia. It appears there are 4 trains per day...3 during the day which take just under 5 hours and also an overnight train if you don't want to waste a day traveling..although you will arrive at a very early hour (5am)...nothing would be open yet. The 10am train will get you into Monterosso before 3pm...still time to find your hotel and have a couple of hours to stroll.
