Riomaggiore was our final destination and after having seen the other four terre we were still impressed by Riomaggiore historic centre. Stroll around, find the great views and details - a pleasure.

This village was another great example of the classic hilltop coastal villages along the Italian Riviera. There were brightly painted buildings clinging to rocks, a fortress, huge churches and incredible views of the sea and mountains. Be sure to explore the narrow walking streets all...More
