Train travel to La Spezia

In September this year we will be leaving Venice by train hopefully going to La Spezia. Can someone tell me what train station in Venice we get the train to La Spezia please. Also does the train go straight to La Spezia or does the train go via Florence? Would we need to change trains anywhere?

There are direct trains from Milan to la Spezia. But if you are going to the Cinque Terre from Milan you almost never go to la Spezia to change trains.

There are direct trains from Milan to Monterosso, and for the other four villages' stations you change trains at one of the stations between Genoa and Monterosso inclusive.

www.trenitalia.com will tell you where to change trains - click the UK flag for English before entering Milano Centrale to your destination village, and also enter your 'hour' of departure from Milan, e.g. enter '13' for 13.00.

Just by accident I come to your review about to stay or not stay in Venice. I can't be more in according with your sapient and clever words. For a person doing such a trip from so farway to see Venice and stay in Mestre, is something out of this world. Mestre, as you said, is an industrial city with no interest at all!!!! I say also, that is a loss of time.

My compliments

I am interested in info in getting to Parma from La Spezia in mid October. Does this route run during this time? Online it doesn't show October. I am trying to figure out if I should fit in cinque terre before parma or alba. I can't find any direct route from CT to alba so was planning on going ct-parma- then renting a car and driving to alba. Please advise.

There is a change of Timetables on 14 June. You cannot get information on trains past that date at present. Put in a date earlier than that to find out the present timetable, there should not be much change later.
