How to get from Nice to Cinque Terre by train

Jump to last reply

I've been trying to figure out how to get from Nice to Cinque Terre by train. So far, my googling has told me that I need to take the train from Nice to Ventimiglia which is on the boarder of France and Italy, and then from there, on to Cinque Terre with a possible stop in Genoa.

My question:

What towns/cities should I search in the trenitalia or bahn.de websites to figure out this trip? I'm able to find trains from Nice to Ventimiglia, but I'm feeling very frustrated because when I try to search trips on either bahn.de or trenitalia from Ventimiglia to Montorosso OR even just to Genoa, they both keep telling me that no routes can be found. I tried searching trains for Nice to Genoa, but apparently there are no routes for that trip, either. I even tried Nice or Ventimiglia to La Spezia (even though that is a bit of a detour) and I get nothing.

What gives??

Help me, I'm starting to lose my temper :( Surely there must be a way to get all the way from Nice to Cinque Terre by train...Am I just making a stupid mistake that is causing my searches not to work? Am I typing in the wrong cities? I'm about ready to throw a temper tantrum here.

I have a rail pass so I'm not trying to book tickets. I just want to look at the schedules and see what time the trains leave and how often, etc.
