If you coming from the north, Riomaggiore is the last village and from the south (La Spezia) it will be the first village you come to. The village can be reached by rail, road and sea.
This village dates from the early 13th century and it's full of narrow streets, steep stairs and old colored houses. In the central lands there are all vine yards, producing a good vine. In the high part of the village there is the parish church of San Giovanni Battista built in the 1340 and the ruins of the XV-XVI century castle.”Rivus Major” is the ancient name of the biggest river which crossed the Riomaggiore.
This village is connected with Manarola with unforgettable “Via dell Amore” - the most famous path of Cinque Terre. This is the most popular path but also be prepared for the crowd especially in the summer.
