How to reach Camogli

From the airport, take the shuttle (Volabus 6,50€) to the BRIGNOLE train station (last stop); the trip takes about 30min depending on the traffic.

There you can take a train to the south to reach the station CAMOGLI-SAN FRUTTUOSO; the trip takes about 30min. You have regular regional trains about every 20-30min till 20:20 (and then about 1/hour till 24) [italian trains timetable]. You can buy the ticket also at the newspapers kiosk.

For the Hotel, because Camogli is pretty small, I managed to host all attendees at the Hotel La Camogliese. Please send me your plans so that I can forward your name to the Hotel.
