How to get to Levanto

The easiest way to get to the Cinque Terre is by train. A local service connects all the villages, including Levanto, and trains run frequently to the region from key cities such as Genoa and Pisa. An alternative is to go by car, but the roads in the region are very narrow and winding. The only town with a lot of parking is Levanto. A ferryboat service operates from the beginning of April to the end of October, stopping at each of the villages.
