Cinque Terre - Riomaggiore



















I've been reliving last year's trip to Italy this week. So, I thought I'd take you on a little tour of Cinque Terre, the rugged and beautiful region of the Italian Riviera. The sight of these charming pastel homes, stacked so closely together as if to buttress each other as they cascade down the cliffs to the sea, is breathtaking and somewhat surreal. Riomaggiore is a lovely fishing village, and being a little less touristy than some of the other towns, I found it to be a great base to explore the area.

Bellissima! I've been to this sliver of Liguria before, and used Camogli as my home base. I'm headed back this spring and will stay in Genova, for a change. But I've got lots of lovely day trips planned, including a return to the Cinque Terre. I can't wait.

Thank you for that feast for the eyes, Irene. You made me sigh with longing and a nostalgia for something I've never seen.

Che bello. Trip to Cinque Terre was one of the best for me last year and have to say, also one of the best so far to Italy. This little villages are so beautiful, the colourful boats are amazing, the people are so nice and the food is the best in Italy (pesto was so good in Manarola).

Your photos, what can I say, you inspire me so much, your work is amazing and takes me back to Italy. Dreamy, soft and with a great sense for colours. Saluti di Slovenia
