When we visited Cinque Terre in September 2006,
we came to Riomaggiore twice. And both times we really loved it!

Riomaggiore is a cheerful village with colorful houses and great views,
lots of stairs to overcome and small paths and alleys all around.


The first time was to celebrate my husband's birthday in a restaurant recommended by sue_stone - everything was perfect and we loved Riomaggiore, "La Lanterna" and every bite of the delicious food!

We later returned to Riomaggiore to walk the Via dell'Amore, the (paved) footpath leading to the next village, Manarola. It was enjoyable, easy walking and we did enjoy the scenery and the wonderful views of the Mediterranean (and the gorgeous graffiti as well)!

All in all we love to think back to Riomaggiore and sure would like to go back one day!

    Hi Christine, I very much enjoyed your Riomaggiore page. I'm looking at all the places I must see in Italy when I go there next Spring, and Cinque Terre looks like a must see! Thanks, Brian

    Hi Christine, you've made another lovely new page here. Glad you found (through VT) such a great place to celebrate Heinz's birthday.

    Wow, I now realize I should have stayed a day extra to do that boat tour, the views from the boat are so wonderful! And the food at the restaurant sounds absolutely delicious!

    An excellent page and another good reason to go to 5terre soon again. Unfortunately I saw Riomaggiore just from the distance, when passing by in the boat to Vernazza
