    Hi Ileana,

    For the requested itinerary, your most economical option would actually just be to purchase regular tickets, as opposed to any rail pass.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    Venice to Cinque Terre

    The 5 towns of the Cinque Terre are Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. All 5 of these towns have rail stations, but Monterosso (the northernmost town of the Cinque Terre) and La Spezia (the town just south of the Cinque Terre) serve as the main rail hubs/gateways. Currently, only schedules to/from Monterosso, Riomaggiore, or La Spezia are even able to be viewed on our website.

    For travel from Venice to Monterosso, you could go with a connection that takes about 5.5 to 6 hours and involves changing trains once in Milan along the way.

    Otherwise, you could go by way of Florence. This would involve taking a high-speed Le Frecce (Frecciarossa or Frecciargento) or Italo from Venice to Florence. From Florence, there are some direct regional trains to La Spezia, but most connections from Florence to La Spezia involve changing trains in Pisa en route. From La Spezia, you can then take a train that takes you up to Monterosso and/or the other villages of the Cinque Terre. The regional trains are what you would take to travel between each of the villages (the Cinque Terre Express).

    When purchasing tickets for connections such as these, you would just break up your search segment-by-segment (i.e one search from Venice to Florence, another search for connecting trains from Florence to La Spezia, and another search for connecting trains from from La Spezia to either Monterosso or Riomaggiore).

    Cinque Terre to Pisa

    From Monterosso, Riomaggiore, or La Spezia, there are direct trains to Pisa. With certain departures, if starting in Monterosso or Riomaggiore (or one of the other Cinque Terre villages), you may end up changing trains in La Spezia en route.

    Regardless, when purchasing tickets from any of these locations to Pisa, you can just do one search for the full route (i.e. one search from Monterosso to Pisa).

    Pisa to Florence

    From Pisa to Florence, there are direct regional trains departing frequently.

    Florence to Naples

    From Florence to Naples, you would take either a Frecciarossa high-speed train or an Italo high-speed train.

    Naples to Rome

    From Naples to Rome, you would once again take either a Frecciarossa high-speed train or an Italo high-speed train.
