You read that right, the promises have finally become a reality! You can *finally* purchase your Cinque Terre National Park passes online.
To purchase your passes (directly from the Cinque Terre National Park, this isn’t a third party platform) go to: https://card.parconazionale5terre.it/en
*I really wish the park could streamline their marketing efforts and call the passes the same thing on all of their platforms, making it a little less confusing for visitors.
In case you were wondering (don’t worry, I was, too), “aggregate” is a supplement for groups larger than 25 persons and “guys” is a translating blunder and should be “youth” (for kids age 4-11 years).
You will have to create a login and password for the site (ugh, don’t they realize we already have nine zillion passwords and logins to remember?).
Payment can be made by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Maestro), no PayPal.
After you’ve made your purchase you should receive an email with a file to download.
Ta-dah! You’re all set.
- Do I have to purchase passes in advance? Absolutely not. But you’ll save yourself quite a bit of time if you do.
- If I decide to purchase my passes when I’m there instead, where can I do so? You can purchase passes in person at any of the Cinque Terre National Park Info Points. You’ll find them in all five villages + at the La Spezia Centrale and Levanto train stations. If you are wanting the hiking pass, you can actually just start walking the coastal trail and buy the Trekking Card when you reach a checkpoint.
- Help! I’m confused as to which passes I’ll need. Check out my previous post here that details all of the different options and their relative prices.
If you have any other questions just let me know.
