Fivestones is a very impressive line of souvenirs, all made with natural materials like wood, stones, twigs, twine, nails, paper and cork.
This is a line coordinated and articulated, high aesthetic quality, easily recognizable.
Fivestones is the creativity of Italian industrial production as opposed to the Asian market.
In many Cinque Terre shops, infact, there are just souvenir that come from China, thailand and Corea.
My souvenir are made in Italy, from italian handmade. Original and exclusive.

What to buy: Original and Autentic Souvenir hand made in Italy (not China).
This is a lovely shop for foodies! It showcases the typical produce of the Cinque Terre – herbs, olives, different pasta shapes and sauces, preserves, wine, baked goods and much more. It’s all so appealingly displayed, and everything looks really tempting. We bought just a few things to take home as gifts – some chestnut blossom honey, different dried herbs and a pack of pre-mixed spices to flavour arrabiata sauces. We would have bought more had we not been trying to keep the baggage to a minimum (although as you can see from the photo they do ship). Everything we chose was well received by the recipients, especially the honey. I’m afraid I didn’t note the prices but nothing seemed exorbitant for the quality and attractiveness of the presentation.
The shop also sells a few food related items such as kitchen implements and bowls. The service was friendly (we only ever saw one man working there and I think he may be the owner) and it stays open quite late if you want to leave your shopping until your evening stroll rather than carry stuff around during the day.
There are two coop supermarkets in Riomaggiore where you can find local products such as olive oil and, the typical white wine cinque terre.
The best one I tasted was cinque terre costa di campo.
What to buy: Whiote wine cinque terre costa di campo, pesto (which is a pasta sauce), olive oil and anchovies.
What to pay: The wine was about 13 euros.
There are some fabulous shops in Riomaggiore that sell a range of the local produce.
Take a browse and I am sure there will be a few tempting items you would like to buy....perhaps a bottle of wine to enjoy by the harbour on sunset...
What to buy: Specialising in delicious products like fruit & veg, olives, anchovies and the best of all - local Cinque Terre wines.
What to pay: Cheaper than big city prices.
