Albergo Santa Maria is an excellent starting point to reach the Cinque Terre. Given to the relatively inaccessible location of the villages and the structural lack of parking, the easiest access is by train.Regional train journeys are very frequent, particularly during the summer season, without forgetting, however, that in Monterosso and Riomaggiore also medium-distance inter-regional trains stop.
Our hotel is located 800 meters from the Chiavari station.
To access the Cinque Terre paths and take advantage of additional services within the Cinque Terre National Park, we recommend purchasing the Cinque Terre Card.
The card can be purchased at all reception centers of the Cinque Terre National Park and now also online at the Cinque Terre Card Online (external service provided by the Cinque Terre National Park) to consult the timetables
