La Spezia Base (travel card)

Hi,

We are staying in La Spezia late in August for 4 days. We would like to explore all the Cinque Terre villages (Monterosso Vernazza Corniglia Manarola Riomaggiore) and also PortoVenere. If there is time we would like to visit Portofino also.

Do you thing there is enough time to do this ? We have 3 nights. 1rst day is half and last day is not counted since we must get up early to catch the train for Bergamo Airport.

Last question. Is there a "travel card" for the trains so that they can be used as hop-on/ hop-off from village to village ?

Suggest on your first afternoon you take the train to one of the CT villages, possibly Vernazza and spend the time there possibly having dinner there or in Monterosso before returning to La Spezia. Unfortunately the flat Trail between Riomaggiore and Manarola is currently closed , otherwise I would have recommended that for your first day.

On your second day suggest you take the train to Monterosso , looking around before getting an all day ferry ticket for Portovenere. You can get off at any of the villages you have not visited either on the outward trip to Portovenere or the return trip.

Your third day you could take the train to Santa Margherita Ligure from where you can take the ferry to Portofino. You could return to Rapollo to get the train to return to La Spezia.
