Riomaggiore is the southern most village of Cinque Terre (“five lands”) and is the closest when traveling north from La Spezia. We briefly stopped by Riomaggiore the first day to start our “hike” on Via dell’Amore but decided to come back a second morning to spend time in the marina and hang out on the rocks with the fishermen. I couldn’t resist coming back to take way too many photos of the pretty boats docked in the marina. We even saw a group of locals catch a baby shark!
