Location: Riomaggiore + Monterosso, Cinque Terre// Google Maps
I’m going through a lot of my old pictures and some of my most popular prints have always been of Cinque Terre, a small coastal collection of five towns in Italy. I’ve been there twice and both times I’ve had pretty amazing memories from there.
Riomaggiore (RimasÃu in the local language) is a village and a commune in the province of La Spezia, situated in a small valley in the Liguria region of Italy. It is the first of the Cinque Terre one meets coming from La Spezia.
The village, dating from the early 13th century, is known for its historic character and its wine, produced by the town’s vineyards. Riomaggiore is in the Riviera di Levante region and has shoreline on the Mediterranean’s Gulf of Genoa, with a small beach and a wharf framed by tower houses. Riomaggiore has one or two roads where people go and hang out, but most of the life at night can be found at the Bar Centrale.
