    Bar Conchiglia: Prime location

    by toonsarah Updated Aug 4, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This bar has an enviable location on the tip of the southern of the two spurs of rock that form Riomaggiore’s tiny harbour. If you want to drink while watching the sunset, this is the place to come. It has a few tables outside on the cliff path, and more upstairs on the roof, where we sat one evening for our pre-dinner drinks. Incidentally, it also took the prize for best accompanying nibbles, as these chunks of foccacia were really delicious. As it was mid-summer when we were in Riomagiore, before dinner was not the best time for sunset viewing, so we also returned one evening after dinner to catch the last of the colours in the sky from the cliff path here – see photo 2, and my Sunset tip (Local Customs) for more images.

    The bar also serves meals (mainly light meals and pasta) but as we never ate here I can’t comment on these, but they looked tasty and were reasonably priced.

    Dress Code: Very casual

    The beach: Relax with others at night

    by osiekhan Updated Mar 22, 2007

    A night people often meet up at the local cafe/bar. You can't miss it. It's the only one open after hours. Mingle with others and prepare to head down to the beach late at night with the crowd when the bar closes. Bring a small flashlight and a bottle of wine/beer if you can.

    Dress Code: Very relaxed.

    La Conchiglia: Fabulous Bar to watch the Sunset

    by sue_stone Written Nov 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Conchiglia is a small bar in Riomaggiore, located just around the point from the harbour, above where the ferry comes in.

    In fact, if you catch the ferry into Riomaggiore, you will walk right past this bar on your way to the centre of town or the train station.

    It is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the sun, or to watch the sunset.

    We washed away the dust of the days hiking with a couple of cold beers and waited for the sun to set.

    The bar closed once the sun was gone.

    By the harbour: Sunset Cinque Terre Style

    by sue_stone Written Nov 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Cinque Terre has some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.

    My favourite thing to do in the evening is to pull up a seat at a bar, just sit by the harbour and watch the sunset.

    It is also a great opportunity to do some people watching - as everyone seems to be out enjoying the view!

    Dress Code: Make sure you have a warm top - it can get cooler after the sun sets.

    Bar Centrale: Nice and quiet. . .

    by cpiers47 Written Nov 26, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are only a couple bars in Riomaggiore and this one, with its terrace and neighboring gelateria, was the place to be! We were usually exausted from hiking or drained by the sun so being able to grab a gelato (or a drink) and play cards was an excellent evening. Ivo (the owner) is very friendly and lived in San Francisco for a while. This is a good place to try the Sciaccatra - the dessert wine of the Cinque Terre.

    Dress Code: beachwear

    the cliffs at the harbour: moonlit panorama

    by call_me_rhia Written May 8, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Down by the harbour, in a little secluded place behind a wall, there's a really nice cliff where you could walk on. You can sit there, you can gaze out to the sea, you can look at the moon... it's really a romantic place: it's imperative not to be alone, there

    Dress Code: dressed? undressed? as you wish!

    Watch sunset from terrace, then a late dinner: There is little nightlife in Cinque Terre

    by davequ Updated Dec 31, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The sidewalks roll up early in most of the towns in the Cinque Terre. Not much "club" action type nightlife. But the sunsets are grand, and the restaurants for late dinner after the sun goes down are very good.
    Get up early and hike (trust me, I'm a nightowl, but it's so beautiful here it's worth getting up early for).

    I took this picture from my hotel terrace as the first lights of the villiage came on below the tower as the beautiful sunset was fading.

    When it's warm (often) and the moon's up it's also nice to go down to beach at night.

    Dress Code: Clothing to be worn most of the time, except at a couple of the beaches and on some of the trails.
