Together with manarola and vernazza, that place is definitly worth the stop. Slightly different in construction, you have two outlook spots on each side

Riomaggiore and Manarola were our favourite towns. We were underwhelmed with the others. This would probably be nicer in the summer. The buildings needed repair and another coat of paint. There is not a lot to do other than go to the water. Note that...More

Historical center, the core of which was originally built in the XIII century, is situated in the valley of the river Rio Maggiore, the ancient Rivus Major from which the village got its name. The first historical information about Riomaggiore date back to 1251, when...More

We stayed in Corniglia and took the train here with the intention of hiking back but the trails were closed so we could only do the section from Corniglia to Manarola. Very disappointing, but at least they do something if it is unsafe. The town...More

Disappointing. Photoshopped. Dilapidated. Nothing really like the tourist pictures. One house stood out the rest needed painting badly. A waste of a train trip from Pisa

I think Riomaggiore is the most colourful of the five and embodies everything that you imagine the Cinque Terre to be ? Sure it is as touristy as the next place but ignore that and just walk around & enjoy the view, the smell &...More

Yes, that was our first impression of Riomaggiore! Magic! Unreal! It was like a movie set that we see in Hollywood. The color of the buildings, the old architecture, the houses that seemed to be part of the mountain, the deep clear waters, the young...More

Quite scenic village that had no charm left. Everything is sacrificed in the name of tourism. Everybody tries to make money from tourists, including the local police. Actually they place misleading signalisation so that someone would think parking is allowed, only to come later and...More

Make sure you have comfy shoes and you are ready to ascend. The hills here are steep! Lots of foccacciarias, gelaterias, shops and restaurants line the streets. It's quaint and the homes are in pastel shades. Super cute!
