Explore More About Manarola:

Manarola, built on a high rock 70 meters above sea level, is one of the most charming and romantic of the Cinque Terre villages. The tiny harbor features a boat ramp, picturesque multicolored houses facing the sea, and a tiny piazza with seafood restaurants.

Along the main road, the boats are pulled onto dry land every time the sea is rough. Although there is no real beach here, it has some of the best deep-water swimming around.

The village is all ups and downs, with steep narrow alleys carrugi, leading to the sea.

If you want to venture up to the top of Manarola, make sure you check out the church. In more ancient times, the bell tower was used as a post to watch for potential pirate raids.

You are recommend the scenic hike Manarola - Volastra - Corniglia. The first part of the hiking trail has a very steep climb (1200 steps) which you can skip by taking the bus from Manarola to Volastra. Normally there is a bus every hour.

The path goes along narrow, spectacular terraces with vineyards supported by dry stone walls. It gives you wonderful views of the Mediterranean and the Cinque Terre villages. This path is free and you do not need any hiking pass.
