Cinque Terre trains

Can anyone out ther help me understand how to get around the Cinque Terre towns without renting a car?  We are coming by train from Venice and will stay in one of the towns along the coast (perhaps Santa Margherita) but wasn't sure where the trains drop you off.  Are there buses to the hotels, etc. And does anyone have a favorite town or hotel to recommend.

    Welcome veteranswife.  Unfortunately, I do not know anything about this area, but it is on our bucket list.  I know other Insiders have been to this area and probably will be able to give you some advice.

    veteranswife,

     

    Try going to www.raileurope.com

     

    This will give you stops, costs, and times for rail transportation.  Have only been to Venice once so I really won't be able to help very much. 

     

    What you may want to do, is look at stops in the area, then google that village, then look at the choices for lodging.  You may want to then email that particular property, get information, and a name of a person to "Personalize" your visit.  One other thing that has worked with me, is ask if they have a "Cash" discount.  When staying in Europe, I have found a lot of "Mom and Pop" places will take US Dollars at a greatly discounted room rate.  Usually, they are coming to the US or have relatives here.  Just a thought!

     

    Thanks in advance for letting us know how this all turns out, and I hope others will have something to contribute.
