Photographer's Note

Riomaggiore is a village and a commune in the province of La Spezia, situated in a small valley in the Liguria region of Italy. It is the first of the Cinque Terre one meets coming from La Spezia.

The Via dell'Amore is a path connecting Riomaggiore to its frazione Manarola, also part of the Cinque Terre.

This is the most famous and spectacular path. It was made, over the centuries, by those who used it to move from one village to another and in many parts it is a mule track.
The path from Riomaggiore to Monterosso is 12 km long and reaches a height of 200 metres. The itinerary is mostly made up of paths (8 km), and mule tracks (2 km) while the remaining kilometres are made up of the Via dell'Amore and streets inside the villages.

The water and mountainside have been declared national parks.
