The Village Of Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italy (Road Trip 61)

Scroll down to content

September 2018 – We caught the train from Riomaggiore to Manarola, hoping to find some lunch, everywhere was full, we were about to go on to the next village, when at last we found a restaurant, where most of the diners were Italians, which can only be a good sign that the food is good……and it was.  Sorry no photos, was too good to share.  Once husband had some food inside him, he was up to exploring a little, like the main street back to the train station.  Not a good idea, hundreds of people trying to get on the trains, so we walked back down to where the little cruise boats come in, and sat in the shade watching the world go by.  I did manage to take a few photos, I love the way the boats are parked like cars in the streets.  Eventually a boat came and we got on, as we were nearly first in the queue and I really had to talk husband into getting off at Vernazza, as I wanted to visit the church, it would be the only church from the Cinque Terre that I would get to visit….. he gave in 🙂 and I got to photograph the church… continue.

    1. Yes …too busy, not what I was expecting, if the cruise ships had not been in, it wouldn’t have been so bad. We were lucky in Portofino, no cruise ships in on that day 🙂

      1. Well I didn’t, until you mentioned it, but it must be awful to live there at the height of summer, we were there in September more like Autumn and it was so busy 😦

    1. They are lovely places to visit, its just a shame about the amount of people visiting, would be nicer if they restricted the amount of people. I loved the boats in the street 🙂

      1. haha It is what i thought when I was wandering around Edinburgh . . . If only there weren’t so many tourists. But of course, I was also one! 😀
