Leaving Portovenere harbor and rounding the point

Arriving in Riomaggiore by sea
The ferry continues up the coast, stopping in Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso. We get a good view of the towns and of the train tracks popping in and out of the tunnels as the they proceed up the coast. In the train, there is just a flash of light and a view of the sea, then the darkness of the next tunnel takes over.

Corniglia from the sea
We arrive back in Monterosso, tired, well-fed, and relaxed. Time to pick up a bottle of wine on the walk from the harbor and enjoy the rest of the day.
