Cinque Terre Trains Summer 2016
Happy weekend to all my fans 🙂 I want to announce good news to all travelers that are planning to go to Cinque Terre during Summer 2016. From the next 24 June to 1 November, there are relevant news for the railway line: added more than 44 trains and an increase of 40% for stops weekday. These updates are reported at the official website of the Ligurian Region and Cinque Terre National Park.
There isn’t any translation to English so I decided to do a brief resume explaining the most important news.
The most important update is that are some benefits to all travelers that are planning to stay at least 1 night in Cinque Terre.
Train and Stops
During the weekdays the stops in the 5 villages are increased for the 40% (from 320 to 447) and the added trains will be 44. The fast regional trains (in Italian known as “Treni Regionali Veloci“) now stop also in Monterosso and Riomaggiore.
Trenitalia (the train operator in Italy) has expanded, even on weekdays, the train stops in all localities of the Park for the regional trains Sestri Levante–La Spezia.
Park Card + Train
The visitors and travelers that are planning to accommodate at least 1 night in some of the hotels, bed & breakfasts, apartments in Cinque Terre, they will have a discount applied to the card (used to access the park and traveling on trains).
You can buy the Cinque Terre Card in each station train. And, if you need other additional information in each village there are Tourist Information Points.
This an update for the tourist guides that organize visits to Cinque Terre. Now they can buy until 99 cumulative tickets, in the ticket office of La Spezia, Levanto and Monterosso (before the maximum limit was 29).
I really hope that if you are traveling to the five villages during this Summer you can enjoy this important services news.
Have a nice weekend 🙂
