  The main street in Manarola
by diver-x

At the end of Lover's Lane, you're rewarded with the village of Manarola. Due to the rough waves, the fishing boats were all pulled up onto the town streets. There were too many shops, gelaterias and restaurants to choose from. We were in tourist overload!

But I thought the highlight of Manarola was the cemetery. It was different from anything else I've seen. There was a structure that formed a courtyard. Along the walls of the structure, there were vaults where the deceased are laid to rest. But the most interesting thing was that the people of Manarola have found a way to put a photograph of their loved ones on the face of the vault. So you could see the pictures of the people who had a hand in Manarola's history. Some photos were quite old - turn of the century or older. It was very interesting!

Address: 2nd train stop north of La Spezia
