Manarola is considered to be one of the most charming villages along the coast of the Cinque Terre. It’s charming because it’s easier to navigate, has some of the best cheese in all of Liguria, there are no cars, and it is home to the best view of the Corniglia Bridge. The village is on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and it’s beauty includes brightly colored houses. There are many things to do in Manarola, including visiting the lavender fields, exploring the countryside, and following the path that leads to the Vernazza, Corniglia, and Riomaggiore.
Manarola is simply one of the five gorgeous and historic towns in the Cinque Terre. On the west side of Manarola you will discover a little wild harbor, whilst on the east side there is a humble church square, where residents have gathered for essential meetings and activities for hundreds of years. And, like most Cinque Terre villages, the vineyards are many hundreds of years old throughout, properly built with local stone to make stunning terraces. You even really want to take your time to roam the Manarola winery.
