Visit Manarola in 2024

Manarola, possibly the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre, is an enchanting coastal village that epitomizes the beauty of rural Italy. With its origins dating back to the 12th century, it clings to the steep terraces of the Riviera, offering breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. Renowned for its sweet Sciacchetrà wine and a network of paths connecting to other Cinque Terre villages, it’s a hiker's paradise. Manarola's harbor features a boat ramp, picturesque buildings tripping down the ravine, and a swimming hole that draws visitors during warm weather. The village is not just a scenic wonder but also a cultural tapestry, with locals upholding traditions and a tranquil way of life seemingly suspended in time. As night falls, Manarola lights up, and the reflection of the houses in the waters below is a sight to behold. While less crowded than some of its neighboring towns, Manarola offers an intimate glimpse into the heart of the Italian Riviera, brimming with charm, hospitality, and culinary delights.
Manarola’s allure lies in its simplicity and the vibrant tableau of life, where the Italian dolce vita is enjoyed against the backdrop of an ever-changing sea.
