    Your tips and photos brought back nice memories of my own visit to Riomaggiore many years ago -- but of course those murals by Silvio di Benedetto weren't there yet, since he didn't make them until 2009. I'm glad Riomaggiore is still car-free.

    We enjoyed staying here, even though we were surprised by the October crowds. Nice photos and tips.

    We didn't have to deal with the crowds in November and after your page I am glad! I love the cinque terre and we really explored Riomaggiore this year, its my 2nd fav. town.

    Despite the crowds, it looks like it's worth it because of the views. The restaurants you found sound great too.

    Cinque Terre are so beautiful! Soprattutto se c'e' il sole...
