Manarola is the second village of the Cinque Terre coming from the east
- situated between Riomaggiore and Corniglia.

It is a very old village, although the historical facts are kind of hazy...

We went there on the Via dell'Amore -
an enjoyable 30 minute walk from Riomaggiore.


Manarola is a very colorful and laidback village - it is said to be the quietest of all the Cinque Terre villages. I still love to think back of how we strolled through the narrow streets discovering lots of fine little details and not being pushed by crowds of fellow tourists!

The surrounding landscape is awesome: the sea (the Golfo dei Poeti) is crystal clear and all around the village you have vinyards, trees and flowers. What a joyful piece of earth!

Oh, just in case I have not mentioned it: The Cinque Terre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site - for a good reason!

    Lovely little page here ...I only visited Manarola briefly because I was rushing along the whole Cinque Terre path and therefore didn't have time for the beauty of the coastline ... *winkygrin*

    Via dell'Amore -- what a great name for that spectacular footpath! I don't think there was any such thing as a Cinque Terre Card when I was there -- but that was 38 years ago!
