Trains from Genoa

Do I need to book a train ticket to go from Genoa to Moneglia and Montesorro (Cinque Terra) in September. Also do I book a ticket from Moneglia to La Spezia and then on to Rome before I leave Australia

1. Re: Trains from Genoa

Trains from Genoa to either Moneglia or Monterosso (note spelling) are local (Regionale) trains. It is absolutely pointless trying to book these trains in advance over the Internet. There are no seat reservations (so tickets cannot sell out) and no discounts. Buy the tickets in Italy.

Travelling from Moneglia to Rome, you have to change trains in either La Spezia or Chiavari. The first part of these journeys is again by Regionale train, so there is no point in booking.

From La Spezia or Chiavari to Rome, you travel on a fast train. You would have no difficulty in buying a ticket in Italy, but if your plans are firm you could save some money with an inflexible advance purchase Economy or Super Economy fare.

See www.lefrecce.it looking for trains from Moneglia to Roma Termini.

Moneglia station has no booking office, and its ticket machine sells only tickets for Regional trains.

You should either buy your tickets from la Spezia or Chiavari to Rome before going to Moneglia, or leave yourself enough time to buy these tickets at the connecting stations, which have both booking offices and multilingual ticket machines for National trains.
