Though we only had a single day to explore Riomaggiore, the experience was so amazing, it left an impression which will last a lifetime! Even more stunning and picturesque then we could have imagined, we fell in love with Riomaggiore the moment we saw it! In fact, both Ninel and I were so captivated by this place, we already find ourselves planning our next visit so that we have a bit more time to see everything Riomagiorre has to offer. And it probably goes without saying, but if you guys are planning a trip to Italy, I definitely recommend taking at least a day to explore this charming sea-side comune!
HOW TO GET THERE: We took a train from Florence and absolutely loved it! The 2 1/2 hour journey was an experience in itself! Though I was planning to use this time to catch up on some reading, I ended up spending the entire journey being glued to the window taking in all the beautiful scenery!
WHAT TO DO: There is a lot to do in Riomaggiore, but if I had to choose some of my absolute favorites, I would highly recommend walking along the Via Colombo, a street that runs through the center of this town, which has some great shopping and dining options, spending a few hours at the beach catching some sun rays, swimming and snorkeling ( the water is crystal-clear ) and of course indulging in some delicious Italian food!
WHERE TO EAT: We loved Pie' de Ma', a charming little restaurant and bar, where you can enjoy the stunning views of Riomaggiore while indulging in some delicious food and a glass of vine, or two! :)
