SUNSETS IN RIOMAGGIORE
On the day that I was arriving in Cinque Terre, I had a pretty late train from Florence. I left my hostel pretty early to go explore. I had an appointment at 1 PM to go up to the roof of the Duomo so I went up the 398 steps up the Campanile (the Bell Tower), then up the 463 steps to the top of the Duomo. I then ran all the way back to my hostel to get my backpack, and all the way in the opposite direction to the train station for my train at 3 PM. I took the train to Pisa, then another to La Spezia and then got on the Cinque Terre train to Riomaggiore. I got lost on the way to my AirBnb and ran up and down the steps and streets of Riomaggiore, then up the three sets of stairs to my room. Let's just say I was completely exhausted when I got there, but the sun was about to set and I wasn't about to miss it! So I ran back down to the marina and made it just in time! My first Cinque Terre sunset, but definitely not the last as I made a point to see all of them during my four-day stay.
The next day, I took the train to visit the other villages, but made sure to come back to Riomaggiore in time to get pizza and walk back to the marina and find a nice spot to eat dinner with a view.
The 3rd day I spent at the beach, soaking in the sunshine and didn't go back to town until dark, just to make sure I wouldn't miss the view.
Honestly, I would never tire of those sunsets even if I saw one every night for years! It's just so pretty and peaceful!
If you ever visit Italy, Cinque Terre is a must and be sure to never miss one of these magical sunsets while you are there! For more information on Cinque Terre, click here.
