Manarola, like Riomaggiore, is reached by a long pedestrian tunnel from the train station to the center of town. Turn right to follow the main street, built over the creek that tumbles down the mountainside the town is built on. You can hear and see the water running under it in many places.

Uncertain of what do to with so many of the Passigiata paths being closed with the landslides and not wishing to clamber up the slopes after a big lunch we walked up to the church. Several family groups also walking up the hill looking for their holiday accommodation. Top tip - pack light

This charming church is tucked away off the main street. Very easy to walk in and visit quickly. It is located farther up the street from the port area but not far from where you get on and off trails.

Absolutely stunning. Traveling through the Cinque Terra it is a must see. There are several al fresco nearby to serve fresh delicious local seafood.

A pretty small town church with a bell that chimed the hours. It had two organs, one a tracker built recently. I am a church organist and met the builder during a previous visit
