Should I Visit Riomaggiore in Italy’s Cinque Terre?

YESSSSSSS

Welcome to Kaptain Kenny’s coverage of Italy and its stunning region: Cinque Terre.

This was a trip we took last May, just before summer began to creep in.

The weather was still moody and unpredictable with a crisp breeze.

If you go in May, it may be warm enough but still bring a jacket.

My impressions of Cinque Terre:

  • Even in May, Riomaggiore, Corniglia and Manarola were ridiculously packed with tourists. I would hate to see it in July-August-September! May was definitely a good time to go.
  • We didn’t take any public transport, rather we drove our car over a week all the way from Genoa, to Portofino, to Rapallo, to Cinque Terre and then down to the Amalfi Coast. Hold on to your hats if you are a nervous driver. Those roads in Cinque Terre are enough to make your hair stand on end. We survived, thanks to the good German driving skills of my partner however it’s not for the faint hearted.
  • Cinque Terre is mesmerising. It’s mountainous, colourful, intriguing and most of all, the locals are happy and very welcoming.

Enjoy the following photos from Riomaggiore and stay tuned for the photos of Manarola.
