Manarola is absolutely beautiful, set in a steep-sided gorge that is covered with densely packed and colorful buildings. The gorge leads downhill to a small harbor protected from the open ocean by a curve of bedrock. Trails along the terraces on the adjacent hillsides offer splendid views in all directions including nearby villages. Restaurants in the village offer many choices of fresh seafood.

The name Manarola happened, apparently, from the Latin, "magna rota"- "large wheel". The mill wheel was meant. Manarola is the second last in population after Corniglia among the villages of the Cinque Terre. But by age Manarola may be the oldest among the Cinque Terre. Fundamentally three villages - Rio Maggiore, Manarola and Vernazza are similar by structure, design and color. To take a picture of Manarola in its classical form on all sites, it is necessary to turn from the main street right to the observation platform. However, counter the Sun can hinder You, so it's best to arrive here before noon.

A great little fishing village. The views are incredible as is the whole coastline.

Walking through the streets was amazing and the crowds weren't too bad.

Highly recommended that you spend your time in Cinque Terre, one of the most spectacular coastlines I have ever seen.
