Our guide on how to get to the Italian Riviera
Wondering how to get to the Italian Riviera? Here is a little bit of information to help you
Whilst in the region if you haven't hired a car, buses & trains link Genoa with mainly of the coastal towns & villages and this public transport is the best way to access the Cinque Terre which are closed anyway to non-resident traffic.
In summer, there is an abundance of ferry services that hop from harbour to harbour. If you wish to explore the mountains inland then ideally a car is needed but there's also reasonable bus services particularly from the coastal town of Ventimiglia. The Cinque Terre is best visited by the local train which links all five towns and the journey from start to finish only takes around 30 minutes. We highly recommend buying an open ticket which allows you to hop on & off whenever you choose.
The east of the region is served by Nice airport in neighbouring France, while the west can be reached by Genova as well as Pisa. If you don't mind a drive and Turin airport is more accessible for you then it's only a 2 drive to Alassio from here
