Getting from Genova to Santa Margherita is best done by train . Trains depart Genova Piazza Principe station at frequent intervals for Santa Margherita.

It is a 45 minute trip and frequency is every 30 - 40 minutes.

Be careful there are several stations in Genova.You can catch the train to
Santa Margherita from the following stations :
Genova Piazza Principe ,

The closest train station to the port is Genova Piazza Principe, located at Piazza Acquaverde less than a half mile walk from the cruise terminal.
