IMG 2869A 3 hour drive on the autostrada via winding mountain roads finally brought us to Manarola in Cinque Terre. Parking is limited to residents and there is a gate that is permit activated. There is some free street side parking and also a parking lot for 20 euros per day. Due to the long walk into town, we checked into our hotel (thanks to directions from a local citizen ) and reception contacted a luggage transport service for 20 euros including tip to bring our luggage to our room.

Manarola is basically a town on a cliff so be prepared to walk up and down steep grades. We decided to enjoy the coming sunset at Nessun Dorma -definitely a challenging climb but well worth it…Best Mojito ever!!!

And dinner at da Aristide, Lasagna and Spaghetti di Mare were just what we needed to complete our day.

Best of all, there was an ATM right across the way.

Manarola is a small town and is very busy once the first trains of tourists and day trippers arrive.

You can see all the town has to offer in a few hours but it’s a great place to use as a base.
