We are cruising with a stop in both Santa Margherita and Laspezia. The ship offers excursions but wonder if anyone has gotten to the towns from a cruise ship on their own. If so, how so.
Maybe this can help:http://www.explora5terre.it/en ? 5 terra by- shuttle buses. I am not sure, but it seems like you can see some beautiful places not leaving a bus.
This shuttle bus service is new - and their slogan "live cinque terre like a local" makes me laugh as most of us don't have cars and would never dream of going from village to village by car. The train is only 3/5 minutes from one village to the other, whereas the bus takes longer and the road is quite poor - they are VERY windy and people can get really carsick.
Thank you, cm28.
I was thinking about this bus, but your advice helps me to change my plans.
Thank you for your advice!
