Do the Italian trains still run on time? Cinque Terre question

Jump to last reply

(with apologies to Mussolini) We want to take a train from Monterosso (via La Spezia) to Civitavecchia to start a cruise (on a Monday next fall). The guidebooks say that the trains to and from Cinque Terre are unreliable. I suspect the La Spezia to Rome train is reliable, but we will need to take the puddle jumper to La Spezia. There are only two trains that day that will allow us time to get to the cruise, so our window is small. Has anyone had experience with the Cinque Terre trains? How reliable or unreliable are they?

If the train is too unreliable, we'll probably have to go to Civitavecchia the night before, but I'd like to add another night in CT if possible.
