Hi L,

For help in searching, it's spelled TerrE.

Train schedules from Pisa aeroporto to La Spezia and the CT towns is at www.trenitalia.com.

You can purchase tickets as early as 60 days in advance.

Have a nice visit.

We enjoyed staying in Vernazza. We hiked to all 5 towns but found it the most interesting. We stayed at Gianni Franzi but recommend it only if you don't mind walking up 84 steps to get to your hotel. If you stay in Vernazza, be sure to have breakfast at the Sicilian bakery at the top of the hill across from the parking lot - lots of fun and delicious pastries.

Monterosso is the only one with any night life - meaning restaurants and bars. Riomaggiore is the least nice in my opinion. Others are all pretty. Must do the walk from Riomaggiore to Monterosso it's the only thing about the 5 Terre which is really special.
