Train Station in Cinque Terra

My wife and I are going to be spending two weeks in Italy in August and plan to go from city to city by train. Does anyone know what the train station in Cinque Terra is? (the TrenItalia website asks to put in the name of the train station, whereas for our larger city destinations we just have to put in the name of the city). Also, what is the difference between Eurostar Italia and ES Italia AV? They appear to travel at the same speed, so was unsure if there was any advantage to take one over the other. Thanks!

Mike

PS- We will be staying in Vernazza, but don't know if the main train station is in a larger town and we will have to taxi/take another train in? Any advice is much appreciated!!

Each town has it's own station. The "locale" is the train that stops at each. So you'll use Vernazza.

The Eurostar often goes into other countries. It stops far fewer times that regular Italian trains. Locales usually stop at every town along the route.

The towns are quite small. The station in each of the towns is also small and right in, or close to downtown. You can also take boats between the towns.

Hello mif
the cinque terre are Riomaggiore-Manarola-Corniglia-Vernazza-Monterosso
There are small villages no work taxi
Only in Monterosso between new and old town there is but 5 minutes walking
In Corniglia located in the hill have 400 steps but there is a shuttle bus if you no like walking
In CT work local train and stop in every station :The eurostar working a long distance and between the principal city with obbligatory reservation speed high
