There isn’t much to see in Riomaggiore, but what is there, is really nice and worth the visit.
Getting there by train is basically compulsory. The only pleasant alternative would be by foot from another of the nearby coastal towns belonging to the Cibqueterre strip of land.
For my first trip there, I carried my Bronica SQ-A with the 80mm Zenzanon and Portra 160, mostly used mounted on my Giotto’s tripod; and the Sony α6500 with that weird contraption that is an old Nikkor 28mm f/2 AI-S mounted with a tilt-shift adapter. All went fine, photographically, however I wish I had been lighter. Unfortunately, if I want to capture footage, I can’t practically do it with film! Down below, three pics shot with the Sony camera.
