“An aperitif at sunset and a romantic dinner with eyes on Manarola”
Last Sunday, my boyfriend and I went to his house in Riomaggiore , an ancient village and It is the pearl of the Riviera di Levante, Riomaggiore is the easternmost and southernmost of the so-called Cinque Terre. The historical center, whose original nucleus dates back to the thirteenth century, is situated in the valley of the river Rio Maggiore, the old Rivus Major from which the village takes its name. The village consists of several parallel orders of houses Genoese towers that follow the steep course of the stream.
A quick aperitif on the terrace overlooking the sea, the smell of the sea and the salt that drop on your skin and some photos with this beautiful light. The hours of sunset are my favorite to take pictures because they are unique and romantic.
For dinner, instead, we went to Manarola. It is an ancient village on the Italian Riviera di Levante, and is one of the Cinque Terre. The village is in the final stretch of the river valley Groppo. The colorful houses, constituted by the typical houses Genoese towers, overlooking a behind the other on the main street, called Via Discovolo obtained from coverage of the watercourse. The country then climbs the rocky ridge that juts out into the sea, resulting in a network of narrow alleyways, which run parallel across multiple intermediate levels connected by stairways irregular slate.
We had dinner at Trattoria “From Billy”: rediscover and preserve the image of the fisherman once “fishing” not only tastes and smells of the sea, local cuisine, but also the flavors of the land between the terraces. Three generations of fishermen and an excellent chef cook and serve at the tables on tables products of one of the most beautiful villages of the 5 Terre that has retained simplicity and traditions .The Trattoria “From Billy” is located at the top of Manarola and it consists of three layers “on the terrace”: two rooms and a large open area where you can admire the sea, the village and the hill with the gardens. A stone staircase surrounded by lush gardens and lemon trees will lead you in different environments. The breathtaking view that is enjoyed from their terrace and from the windows of the halls will be the icing on the cake of your lunch or your dinner at the “TRATTORIA BY BILLY”.
