From the highways A12 Genova-Livorno or A15 Parma-La Spezia, exit at “La Spezia-S.Stefano di Magra” tolbooth and follow the direction to La Spezia. After 5 km of road junction you enter the city. Following the signs for Cinque Terre, pass the seafront and then skirt the walls of the military Arsenal. Keep continuing along the walls to the left and then pass the municipal stadium A. Picco. When you arrive to the crossroards, go straigh uphill towards Riomaggiore-Manarola along the S.P. n° 370 “Litoranea delle Cinque Terre” (coast road). Follow it to the crossroads for Riomaggiore and then continue for another 2 km enjoying the panoramic road downhill.


Riomaggiore is a small village closed to traffic. The public car park is located at the entrance of the village but there are very few parking lots, they cost 35 euros a day and cannot be reserved in advance. We therefore do not guarantee that you will find a place on arrival. We therefore suggest:

  • to book in advance our private oarking lot at the price of 30 Euros per night (upon availability)
  • or to leave the car in La Spezia (which also means avoiding the long queues on the coastal road, especially in high season) and to reach Riomaggiore by train (only one stop and 10 minutes journey).

The best connected airports are those of Pisa and Genoa.

From Pisa (it takes about 2 hours to arrive): once landed, you will find a Train Information Office where you can buy your ticket for La Spezia. You will receive two tickets: the first for the Pisa Airport – Pisa Centrale shuttle connection (it will take 5 minutes). The second for the train from Pisa Centrale to La Spezia. Once you arrive in La Spezia you will have to buy another ticket for the train which will take you to Riomaggiore in more 10 minutes (just one stop).

From Genova: once landed, you will find a shuttle service that will take you to the Genova Piazza Principe railway station. From there there are several possibilities to reach Riomaggiore directly by train according to your departure time from Genova. For info and tickets visit
