Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Riomaggiore, Italy your home away from home

Riomaggiore is a small village in the Liguria region of Italy, and the first of the ‘Cinque Terra’ villages found when travelling west from the city of La Spezia, the capital of the province of the same name. A Riomaggiore villa is a good base for a number of different types of holiday, whether it be a relaxing break to enjoy the fine local food and wine, an active holiday of hiking and walking in the outlying countryside or a nature-spotting trip visiting the village’s zoos and marine options.

Things to do in Riomaggiore, Italy

Perhaps Riomaggiore’s biggest claim to fame is its several small zoos and aquariums, which mainly contain native Italian animals and sealife. More marine life can be seen at the harbour, a picturesque area of town, and you have the added bonus here of being able to browse the selection of small shops and enjoy a cup of fresh coffee at the same time.

The village is also known for its wine, which has been produced in the vineyards that lie on the outskirts of Riomaggiore for many centuries. If you have even a tiny penchant for red wine a tasting trip to one of these wineries is a must, and you will likely come away with enough alcohol to keep you happy for the remainder of your stay.

People also visit Riomaggiore for an active break of walking and hiking. The Via dell’Amore path is an extremely popular route, taking in the five Cinque Terra villages and an abundance of olive groves, old buildings and grape vines along the way. The terrain can get rocky at times, and wearing proper footwear is a must if you attempt this trail, but it is all worth it to see a more rural side of Italy which is well of the beaten tourist trail.

Places to visit on holiday in Riomaggiore, Italy

The use of a hire car is strongly recommended when staying in Riomaggiore accommodation, as it will allow you to explore this rural area to its fullest. If you decide to head north-east, the next Cinque Terra village is Manarola (5km), which can be on foot via the Via dell’Amore path. This trail continues its path throughout the five villages, with Monterosso al Mare being the most north-westerly of the five and 28km from Riomaggiore.

Weather in Riomaggiore, Italy

Riomaggiore holidays are perhaps best enjoyed in May or June, when temperatures are regularly in the mid-twenties, but do not carry the heat and humidity of peak summer months. Autumn and winter are mild, and if you decide to visit Riomaggiore during these quieter seasons of the year you are unlikely to be disappointed with the weather.

Flights to Riomaggiore, Italy

Riomaggiore is centrally located from a number of international airports. These include Genoa Cristoforo Colombo Airport (GOA, 79km) and Pisa Galileo Galilei Airport (PSA, 97km), putting visitors in an excellent position of choice when it comes to booking flights. The suggestion is to shop around well in advance and find yourself the best deals available.

The apartment has all you need and was sufficiently large for us. One of the 2 terraces is huge and we enjoyed breakfast outside in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening watching the never ending flow of tourists beneath. Don't expect a lot of charm - but you'll spend most of your time outside anyway as there is plenty to see. Gianfranco, the landlord, has been great. I had a little problem with my second payment and he helped me sort the issue. The garage is very useful so that you don't have to worry about parking fees.
