If you want to reach by car Manarola, and sleep a few nights in the Cinque Terre, we recommend to park the car, going to your accommodation, and not using it until departure.
To visit the five villages we recommend using the train, walking along the paths or using the boats.
PARKING IN MANAROLA
If you intend to stay in Manarola the parking possibilities are mainly these:
Paid parking before the town of Manarola (rates are shown at the bottom of the page)
Free parking along the road before reaching Manarola, where allowed on the roadside
It will be more difficult to find a place from July to August, especially on Saturdays and Sundays and on spring holidays; during the other months there will be less difficulties.
From the paid parking in Manarola you can reach Casa Capellini on foot in 5 minutes.
PARKING IN LA SPEZIA
For parking in La Spezia we recommend some possibilities
PARKING FOR LA SPEZIA CENTRALE STATION
One solution is to park in La Spezia in the paid parking under the La Spezia Centrale railway station (cost € 1.20 / h; € 0.50 / h at night) in the city center.
It will be very easy to take a regional train to Manarola, from the end of March to October you will have about three trains available every hour, the train journey is 10 minutes and you have to get off at the second stop.
Find parking in the city near the station, but we do not recommend this solution because the whole area is paid.
PARKING IN LA SPEZIA IN “PIAZZA D’ARMI”
If you want to walk, you can leave your car in the peripheral parking of “Piazza d’Armi” where you can reach the station on foot in about 10 minutes, or take advantage of the shuttle bus service that takes you to the center near the station.
PARKING IN LA SPEZIA “PALASPORT”
Another possibility is the “Palasport” free parking very close to the highway exit; avoid the traffic of the center and you will have a shuttle bus service to reach the station easily
