Riccò del Golfo
Santa Margherita Ligure
is a real a paradise place to go and it has ideal combination of wandering in wild nature, swimming in sea, and sunbathing on the beach.
, how is it not one of the wonders of the modern world? I was travelling and stumbled across this place from a recommendation from a fellow traveller. It's absolutely breath taking. My only request, if you go, respect it, it's beautiful and needs to stay that way.
Been there twice and would go again in a heartbeat.
is especially good for those who want some physical activity and scenery too. Stayed in Riomaggiore which was less touristy than the others, but any of the 5 villages would do!
I went to
in 2004 on recommendation of a friend. I truly felt like I had stepped back in time. Definitely medieval, it was actually a very spiritual experience. Loved the place and will return there one day. It beat the BIG cities like Florence any day.
is AWESOME. The trains between the five cities stop running early, around 12 am, so you should stay in a town where the night scene suits you. The five cities are Riomaggiore, Manorola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Moneterosso. Monterosso is the biggest and has the best beach. They are all very tiny. We stayed in Riomaggiore, which we loved. If you can't find a hostel, ask around about rooms once you are there. We stayed with an old family that rented out rooms. It was very pleasant and clean and we were treated well. Don't miss the hike!
is my favourite place in the world. I wish I could stay there forever. If only I could find a job I would.
