The story behind the image
Yesterday I shared an image of the rugged coastline known as Via dell’ Amore in Italy which starts in Riomaggiore and connects five villages in the beautiful area called Cinque Terre. When you start your hike in Riomaggiore, your first stop will be here in Manarola. (Here is a wide angle shot of the town.)
I think the architecture is simply amazing, and it’s easy to see why cars are prohibited in the town. You could simply not get anywhere! Instead, you have parking lots above the town and just walk between the houses. Or you take the train from La Spezia to Monterosso al Mare and plan for a stopover in Manarola.
The photo shows the village from a viewpoint from the next leg of the hike, i.e. from Manarola to Corniglia. Please note that this section is quite long – even if it looks close! – and not as safe as from Riomaggiore to Manarola.
