cinque terre, Liguria: 26 reviews and 66 photos


The town of Manarola is small and peaceful.

If coming from Riomaggiore or the train station, you'll arrive through a pedestrian tunnel; this tunnel was used by the town residents to seek shelter during air raids of WWII.

From the Tunnel you enter town close to the elevated Piazza, usually kids playing here and our Daughter was fascinated by the inlay fish in the Piazza.

Heading up the hill you have the church, and about 1 KM up is a parking area.
Continue towards the water with shops, gelato and cafes and a few decent restaurants; this direction leads you to the trail and on to Corniglia.

Address: Between the five villages; two levels of difficult

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
