Getting here

How to arrive by car

Autostrada A12 (GENOVA-LIVORNO, direction LIVORNO), go off at CARRODANO KM 70.

After having paid the Autostrada in cash or with your credit card, you come right away to a junction. Turn left and follow the road for 8km to Montale.

GPS Coordinates: 44 11' 06"   9° 37' 28"

Levanto can also be reached via the main road from La Spezia: the coastal road, number 370 for the Cinque Terre (36km).

The Cinque Terre can also be visited by taking this road, but it must be emphasized that access for cars into the towns is forbidden and parking can often be a few kilometres from the centre.
However winding and tortuous this road may be, it is certainly worth it for the magnificent views and appreciative value of the cultivated terraces clinging to the mountainsides.

How to get to Levanto by train

The trains between La Spezia and Genova depart once or twice every hour.

For a train timetable visit the official site of Italian Railways (F.S. Spa) click here!

The ticket offices in the stations in the evening are often closed. You can also buy tickets at the 'tabacchi' shops or bars.

Tickets are good for 5, 10 and 20 kilometers, you have to validate them at the yellow machines in the station before you start your journey. They are valid for 6 hours. 10 km tickets are all you need for the 5 villages. Tickets will be checked on the train!

The trains run till about 11:30 pm

And a single ticket exists which allows you to visit all of the Cinque Terre.
The ticket offices in Levanto and the Cinque Terre train stations are only open from 6:10am to 8:00pm. However tickets can also be bought from the tourist agencies “Levantur” and “Viaggi Cinque Terre”.

Note: Be careful, if you sit too far back in the train when it stops in the villages your car might still be in the tunnel and you won’t be able to see the town’s sign.
