Do I have to validate the Cinque Terre Card?

The Cinque Terre Cards (paper tickets) purchased at the station must be validated at Trenitalia's stamping machines before boarding the first trip. Fines are quite expensive! You will find the green stamp machines located in the stairs on the way to the platforms. The Cinque Terre Card is personal and non-transferable, the user's name must be written on the back of the card. It must be exhibited along with a valid ID. You do not have to validate train tickets and Cinque Terre Cards purchased online (e-tickets). More information: How to validate your ticket.

Remember to validate all paper tickets before departure, that means the Cinque Terre Cards and all one-way train tickets.

Do I have to buy a Cinque Terre Train Card?

No, you do not. There is no entrance fee to the Cinque Terre National Park. Whether you need a Cinque Terre Train Card or not, depends on how many journeys by train between the villages you intend to make. The card costs 18,20 euros a day for an adult. A one-way train ticket between two villages costs 5 euros per journey.

Anyway, if you plan to use the train at least twice in a day and also want to hike one of the chargeable coastal paths, you better buy a Cinque Terre Train Card. Another benefit of this card is avoiding long lines to purchase train tickets during the crowded summer season.

Cinque Terre in winter

In the off-season, from November 6 until March 17, all hiking paths are free of charge. During this period we do not recommend you to buy a Cinque Terre Train Card. It is cheaper to buy single train tickets. One single ticket between the Cinque Terre villages costs about 2,50 euros during the winter. In low season the trains are running once or twice an hour between the five villages.

Dogs on the train

Dogs are allowed with leash and muzzle. Small dogs can travel free of charge on all train categories. For larger dogs you need to purchase a ticket at half the price of the regular fare.

Bicycle on the trains

On all regional trains in Liguria, even on those not marked with the special symbol, passengers are permitted to travel with a bicycle free of charge.
