Þorpin fimm – #1RIOMAGGIORE

by Halldóra

Við fórum í lest frá Manarola til Riomaggiore þar sem við fundum ekki opna gönguleið á milli þorpanna. Hins vegar höfðum við mjög stuttan tíma til að skoða Riomaggiore þar sem síðasta strætó í þorpið okkar fór klukkan 17:00 og við vorum bara þarna rétt fyrir þann tíma. Svo við hlupum svolítið í gegnum hann, en náðum að kíkja inní eina kirkju og kveikja á kertum og hugsa til okkar nánustu <3

The five towns of Cinque Terre
Cinque Terre is a rugged coastline on the Italian Riviera composed of five beautiful hillside villages; Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore.

The five villages are connected by hiking trails open all year round. For the trails Monterosso – Vernazza – Corniglia you will need a Cinque Terre Card. All other trails are free! The Cinque Terre Express trains are running every 20 minutes between the five villages. You can also enjoy this scenic coastline by taking the ferry and hop on and off where you like.

Riomaggiore is the most southern village of the Cinque Terre, situated just a two minutes by train from Manarola. The town climbs up along the ridges overlooking the sea and it is characterized from the typical stone houses with coloured façades and slate-roofs.

Stroll along the main street Via Colombo down to the sea, where a small harbor, marina, is framed by lovely pastel houses and filled with brightly coloured fishing boats. There is a pebble beach located near the boat docking point and the picturesque harbor.

In Riomaggiore you can find the best spot to capture the sunset in Cinque Terre. As the sun starts to set, many people gather to sit on the rocks by the harbor. There are also some nightlife here with numerous restaurants and bars open until 1am.
