About the station

Our guide to La Spezia Centrale station explains how to connect there for trains heading to the Cinque Terre, and how to head to the city centre.

Accessing the City Centre:

La Spezia Centrale train station occupies an elevated position above the city.
What looks the main exit from the station, leads on to a roadway that leads down towards the city, hence the taxi rank being located by this exit, which leads off of the main station hall.

However, when arriving by train at most of the binari (tracks/platforms), you need to descend into a passage way, which runs beneath the railway lines, in order to exit the station.
This passage way also runs beneath the station buildings and exits on to a street named 'Via Fume'.
Therfore to access the main exit, you need to ascend up into the main station buildings, but there is little point in doing so - the quickest route to the city centre is to exit on to Via Fume.

However, La Spezia Centrale is at the opposite end of the city centre to the port area - so on foot you need to allow 15-25 mins to make the journey.
An alternative to walking are the bus lines/routes 6 and 13 (and maybe others) that link the station with the port area.
When you exit on to Via Fume, from the station's passage way, the bus stop is to the left.

Accessing the Station:

When heading to the station from the city, you don't have to walk up the steep station approach road.
Carry on along Via Fume and to the right will be a wall that separates the road from the station - the passage way to the station has been knocked through this wall.

If you use this Via Fume entrance, you can use the elevators to access the main station building if you want to buy a ticket.
Other elevators (if they're working) also link the binaro (platforms/tracks) to this passage way that runs beneath the tracks
