Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre

by Melissa

Sometimes the hustle and bustle of the big city can get to me. Sometimes I just need a break from the noisy trams, crowds of tourist and speeding vespas. Where to go when Rome seems over-whelming? Why not relax by the crystal blue sea, cascading cliffs and brightly colored homes in Cinque Terre? Honestly though Riomaggiore, the southern most part of Cinque Terre, is a place worth visiting. It may be one of my favorite places I’ve been, and recently I’ve been a lot of places! Even if the hiking trails were closed due to rock slides, the view from the marina, the relaxing atmosphere and the incredible sea-food was more than enough for me.
