Riomaggiore is the southernmost Italian village and is named after a stream that once ran through the town. According to the tradition, the town dates back to the 8th century, when a group of Greek fugitives found shelter there.
One of the most colourful villages of the Cinque Terre, Riomaggiore’s tower houses are painted with typical traditional colours and stretch along a vertical axe connected by steep staircases.
The village features one of the most preserved Italian castle ruins of the region and one of the only walkways along the Cinque Terre trail featuring benches where you can rest and soak up the views.
Riomaggiore offers a number of places to hold your Italian destination wedding ceremony or reception including the balcony of the historic town hall overlooking the sea, the castle ruins overlooking the sea and a neo-gothic style church with its twin marble doors.
Riomaggiore is the perfect location for a rustic chic wedding on the Italian Riviera.
