We’ll give you here info on how to get to Vernazza by car, but, try to leave your car behind.
The fastest & easiest way is reaching the area by train.
But, anyway, if you love experiencing the turns and bends of the narrow road that takes to Vernazza, here you can find all the info you may need..
GUESTS COMING FROM THE SOUTH & THE EAST
If you are coming from the South, your motorway exit is LA SPEZIA. Once entered the town, keep driving following the CINQUE TERRE signs that take you to the panoramic costal road, called Litoranea (SS370). This will offer you stunning views of the Cinque Terre from the top.
You’ll pass above Riomaggiore and Manarola villages, then head up to Volastra and then down again towards Vernazza.
Please, note: in the Cinque Terre area, there are no gas stations. The closest pumps are located in La Spezia and Levanto.
GUESTS COMING FROM THE NORTH & THE WEST
If you are coming from North or North/West of Italy, like from Milan or Genoa, you should take and follow the motorway A12 (Genova Livorno) and exit at the sign CARRODANO (you are now 20 km from the village).
This road, anyway, is by now extremely dangerous and difficult, and we warmly advise you not to choose this exit, but to keep driving till La Spezia and follow directions written above.
Please, check all signs on the road signalling eventual closures due to landslides!
