10 things to do in Riomaggiore

1. Bathing in the pebble beach A swim in Riomaggiore In summer it is truly unmissable, even if you are passing through. Take a small towel with you, don't miss the chance. The sea is truly crystalline, sensationally clear seabed. Don't forget your sunscreen though, no shade!
2. Visit the church of San Giovanni Battista Church of San Giovanni Battista The main monument of the village, in the upper part of the town. Rosette and external decorations are the top.
