The tiny village of Riomaggiore is perched on the steep side of a cliff in the Cinque Terre National Park in Liguria, Italy. If travelling from the south, Riomaggiore is the first of the five little villages, then comes Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and finally Monterosso.

As well as relying on fishing, these Cinque Terre havens have vineyards and olive groves nestling here and there on the steep cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.Until recently Riomaggiore in Liguria, Italy was an old-fashioned tiny fishing village, but today, new apartments and houses are mixed with the old cottages and seems to gel nicely.

Walking from Riomaggiore to Monterosso is a little harder than the reverse journey, as the trail gets more difficult as one goes north. Although the walk should take about 5 or 6 hours, if it becomes too tiring there is always the train to ride, which is an adventure in itself. Either walking from village to village or boarding the train, you will enjoy very scenic views of the region.
