The train tickets to the Cinque Terre via La Spezia


Please, note that you will have to buy first a ticket from Rome to La Spezia and then a regional ticket from La Spezia to Vernazza on the so called Cinque Terre Express line.

The train from Rome to La Spezia can take 3.30 to to 4 hours depending on the train you catch (inter-city, regional, eurostar etc) and you’ll be able to reserve a seat.

Validate your Train Tickets

Once you purchase your train tickets, remember to VALIDATE your train tickets before you board.


Any time you take a train in Italy, if you have no reserved seats, you need to have it validated by the auto-stamping machine (usually a yellow or green squarish box, around the train platforms) before you get on the train.
Slide the ticket into the machine, you’ll hear it get stamped, and then take the ticket with you onto the board.
