Riomaggiore Rooftops with the Church of St John the Baptist

Travel Postcard – A Stroll Around Riomaggiore

The train from Turin arrived at La Spezia more or less on time but with the end of day crowds at the station I didn’t quite have enough time to catch the connection back one stop to Riomaggiore but this gave me time to visit the Cinque Terre office and pick up a map and […]
