hkskyline's 2010 CINQUE TERRE - Italian Coastal Hiking #4

Riomaggiore's railway station is partially submerged inside a tunnel. At first I thought we just stopped due to signal problems, but we actually were at the station already!



The town @ night









On the next day ... having done too much hiking uphill the day before, I opted for a more leisurely uphill stroll along the paved road from Corniglia tow Vernazza, as the coastal path remained closed after a night of rain. Even that morning, it was fairly grey and wet.

















They terraced the hillsides quite extensively!

















Soon after, just as we passed the hillside town of San Bernardino, the tropical downpour began, and followed us all the way downhill into Vernazza. Although equipped with umbrella, it was time for lunch. The veal tasted quite good.





After all that rain, I was very surprised to see the sun come out, and soon people were sunbathing on the rocks by the water.

Ah, brings back so many memories of the place! My cousin was married in Riomaggiore at the church atop the hill. Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful towns. I travelled along the railway line many years ago totally unaware of what I couldn't see! I only read about these places last year.
