Best way to get from Ravenna to Monterosso del Mare

There are 7 of us traveling from Ravenna to Monterosso del Mare. We were told the regional trains are slow and that we would have 4 connections, arriving around 4:15 pm in Monterosso. Would it be better to rent a van and return it in La Spezia for $300 plus? Car rental opens at 3 pm in La Spezia and we would still have to take train to destination.

The fastest way is 3 hours/50 by van via Bologna and Parma to Monterosso (a little over 4hrs to La Speiza and then train to Monterosso). See route planning at
