Unforgettable trip in one of the most beautiful places of Italy, between little village, above the sea. Five little villages on one of the most beautiful coastline of Italy, enchanting places as: Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Manarola, Corniglia and Monterosso al Mare.
Riomaggiore is the first little village with colored houses, it has an urban layout made up of a series of footpaths which follow the outline of the land. These steep footpaths allow direct access to the upper floors of some of the houses, the oldest of which are tower-like and built vertically in parallel clusters. Overlooking the village is the parish church of Saint John the Baptist, ‘San Giovanni Battista’, built in 1340 by the Bishop of Luni. In 1870, the facade began to crumble and was rebuilt in the Gothic style. Nearby is the house where Telemaco Signorini stayed on a number of occasions after 1870. Characteristic features of the village were portrayed in many of his paintings. Freetime to visit the village and possibility to walk on the way of love till Manarola. The way of love is impossible to miss for its landscapes and is very easy to find, just at the left of Riomaggiore station’s square you can find the beginning of this beautiful footpath.
