Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

via Cinque Terre coast

It is easy to take the train from Genoa to Pisa via the Cinque Terre coast. Intercity trains travel this, with additional fast Frecciabianca services each day. The route takes in the eastern part of the Ligurian Riviera, including the famous Cinque Terre villages – which are on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Unfortunately, you don’t see very much of the Cinque Terre coast from the train. You’ll catch a few tantalising glimpses, but for much of the Cinque Terre coast the railway line is tucked away in tunnels. But elsewhere, as you ride south along the coast of Liguria, you’ll get some good views of the beaches and resorts that line this coast.

If you want to the Cinque Terre villages, it’s best to take a local train south from Sestri Levante (or north up the coast from La Spezia) to Vernazza, where the railway station gives easy access to one of the most picturesque communities on this stretch of coast.

Genoa to Pisa Centrale

Trains from Genoa to Pisa leave from Piazza Principe station, and then make a second stop at Genoa Brignole station. You’ll arrive at Pisa Centrale, just south of the city centre. The fastest Frecciabianca trains on this route make just one other stop (at La Spezia). Intercity trains on this route stop up to a dozen times along the way and take about 30 minutes longer for the ride to Pisa. The traverse of the famous Cinque Terre coast takes only about 10 minutes as the train travels through tunnels between Levanto and Riomaggiore.
