Of the five towns in the Cinque Terre (literally "five lands") located in the Italian Riviera di Levante region, Riomaggiore is the most southern. This quaint hillside village sprawls down to a small beach and an even smaller wharf. Most of Riomaggiore's social life centers on the local bars after sundown.

The four other Cinque Terre towns -- Corniglia, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza and Manarola -- are all linked together by a trail, and are known for their shopping and long beaches.

I enjoyed looking through the pages on line of the "Armchair tour of Italy". I just recently visited Italy and your article very much depicted the attractions and countryside of Italy. My problem is - I would LOVE, LOVE to get a copy of this article for my 97 year old Italian Uncle - who at his age - still believes he will someday visit Italy and where is mother's family is from. He is not physically capable. Please tell me how I might attain this color article and allow him to travel from his "armchair". Thank you.
