Postcard Snapshot #5: Riomaggiore, Italy
The southern-most village of the Cinque Terre, Riomaggiore, in my opinion, has got to be the most gorgeous one of the five (with Corniglia coming in at a close second). The place actually resembles Vernazza, with its colorful houses right next to the harbor and everything- but personally, the houses in Riomaggiore seem bigger and grander than those in Vernazza.
I, along with Naomi, took the train from Corniglia to Riomaggiore in the late morning (close to 11h00) to start our hike over to Manarola. Of course, we explored Riomaggiore a bit, getting some take-out food (gotta appreciate the convenience and deliciousness of local focaccia bread!) and taking plenty of photos all around the place. Wandered the town, and I stopped by one of the cute boutiques to capture this bright photo of lemon-scented items, as lemons are a big thing in the Liguria region: soaps, oils, even lemons themselves, anything!
…and that’s a wrap for my journey to the Cinque Terre! Sincerely hope that you enjoyed the photos of the jaw-droppingly beautiful villages, as well as learned a little bit more about this tourist-y, but still underrated region of Italy.
Besides visiting the Cinque Terre during my week after teaching in France, I had also made mini trips to a couple of other places in Italy; I will be sharing them, too, but perhaps later. Stay tuned for those! Until then, arrivederci! 🙂
