Cinque Terre Day 1 Manarola

Scroll down to content

We’ve just started five days on the Cinque Terre, catching two trains from Pisa via La Spezia to the tourist/fishing village of Manarola. A quick trip at just under two hours.

The train from La Spezia filled to capacity as the midday Saturday crowds funnelled onto the coast. Fortunately, our trip took only about 10 minutes.

Our apartment balcony looks south with a view of the railway station, a rocky bay below and then out to sea.

We spent the afternoon in the harbour swimming among the moored boats and watching others jumping off craggy rocks. The boat ramp was packed with sunbathers.

I had an adventurous moment helping an older couple who spilled out of their tender trying to come ashore. The chap lost his sunnies in the deep water which I managed to retrieve with the help of a mask, big lungs and a determined kick. Heck the ferry was due and there was suddenly an audience so I couldn’t fail!

The whole town (of tourists anyway) stops to watch sunset, first as it lights up the houses and then as the sun sets behind Monterosso in the distance. We took pizza slices (hmmm pesto pizza!) down to the wharf to watch the night come in.

Here are some photos from today. Tomorrow morning we walk north to Corniglia.
