The tiny lovely village of Manarola was built on the cliffs overlooking the Ligure Sea; it is the oldest of the five famous Cinque Terre towns.

Manarola traditional industries have always been wine-making and fishing; however in the last few decades tourism as grown exponentially especially during the summer time.

Visitors are welcome to stroll through the small medieval streets between brightly colored buildings, or to climb to the top of the hills to enjoy breathtaking views of the town and the sea. Near the city centre is located the beautiful Church of San Lorenzo, built during the 14th century, while in the lower part of the village tourists will find an ancient mill wheel that lies at the origin of Manarola’s name, in dialect it means literally “large wheel”.

Things to see

For the tourists who enjoy long romantic walks, there is the Via dell’Amore, a path approximately one kilometer long which runs along the coast and connects Manarola to Riomaggiore. Others interested in hiking will find trails and tours that lead to the hills and vineyards above the town.
