We arrived last night in time to watch the sun go down before sitting down to a delicious meal in one of the trattorias in Riomaggiore –Il Grottino.
Our accommodation, Casalorenza is to be recommended and is one-minute walk to the main street, restaurants, beach and train station. It’s pink which is no surprise as all the houses in the Cinque Terre are colourful yet they blend in and there’s nothing garish about then.
Most of the accommodation seems to be family owned as our is, with three rooms, all with ensuites. One of the rooms is larger with a kitchen and table and would be perfect accommodation for friends or a family.
In the main street there is a small food store selling everything you need so I’ve stocked up on delicious melon, prosciutto and mozzarella for breakfast with tomatoes and basil from the garden, thanks to the generosity of our host.
I’m here for a great five days, living the Italian dream on the Riviera and plan to do some strenuous hillside and coastal walks so watch the new posts.
