Riomaggiore is a small village, dating from the early thirteenth century and is known for its historic character and its wine, produced by the town's vineyards which stretch high up the side of the mountains. The was a small beach and a wharf. Our room was along Riomaggiore's main street called Via Colombo, where numerous restaurants, bars and shops can be found. We went for a stroll down the main street and found a small restaurant where we enjoyed pizza and a beer. We watched people walking back from the beach and as the temperatures cooled a bit locals moved outside to sit and visit with neighbours. After dinner we went down to the wharf area to locate the ticket booth for the boats that travel from village to village. The rocks along the coast were filled with people enjoying a swim or a glass of wine as the sun was setting.
