Italy – Manarola: Bright and Colourful

Built on a large cliff overlooking the sea, the colourful homes of Manarola are particularly picturesque.

Manarola may be the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre, with the cornerstone of the church, San Lorenzo, dating from 1338. Manarola’s primary industries have traditionally been fishing and wine-making. In recent years, Manarola and its neighboring towns have become popular tourist destinations. Mostly all of the houses are bright and colourful.
