This was the last destination on our Italian trip at the end of May.

We drove our car and parked at the station in La Spezia

Come arrivare

there are local trains which stop at all the stations: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare

Or there is the faster train that will take you from La Spezia to Monterosso in about 15 minutes.

We took the local train and it was a nightmare, the journey should have taken 28 minutes but it ended up taking 1.5 hours!

The train was very busy and extremely hot. It didn't help that it was a Sunday and the weather was glorious, so a few other people travelled there also.


i thought that Monterosso was very nice. It had the best beach of the towns.

We took the boat back from Monterosso toward La Spezia Navigazione Golfo dei Poeti

Just like the train the boat was very busy also.

The scenery is very nice and it is certainly worth visiting, but I would try to go during the week as the crowds might be a bit better.
