Il Pontile (Cinque Terre) PLEASE

Hi all,

I will be travelling to Pisa next week. I would like to visit Cinque Terre by ferry. Unfortunately the Golfo dei Poeti ferries don't run from Pisa in september, so I guess that the nearest point then will be Forte dei Marmi for departure.

We will be travelling from Pisa by train. Can anyone please tell me if the "pontile" from where the ferries part in Forte dei Marmi is far away from the train station?

Many thanks,

From the train station in Forte dei Marmi to the 'Pontile' is over 3.5km.

So you don't suggest walking it?

How long would it take (time) to walk it?

If you don't suggest it, do you know how can we arrive at "il Pontile" from the train station? We will be having a 3 year old with us, and the ferry leaves at 9.30.

I really hope we don't miss it because of wrong time calculations?

THANK YOU. Please advice!

I'd spring for a taxi from the train station to the pontile. Otherwise, your youngster will be tired before your adventure begins.
