How to get to Vernazza:
By train: The easiest and most comfortable way to reach Vernazza is to travel by train. The station is located in the centre of the town. For train schedules we recommend to use the Italian railway's website: www.trenitalia.com
By car: Driving on the freeway from the north you exit at "Levanto-Carrodano"; coming from south or from Parma you leave the freeway at La Spezia and follow the signs "Cinque Terre". The road to Vernazza is tiny and with sharp bends. Since Vernazza is a traffic-free zone you will have to park in a toll parking for tourists, about 1km from the town center. From there you can use a shuttle bus to come to the village which runs almost hourly. We recommend to park your car in the underground parking beside the train station in La Spezia and travel to Vernazza by train.
