Dolly Travels – Riomaggiore and Manarola

Published Date Author: , May 31st, 2012

Riomaggiore and ManarolaWe have to leave this heavenly place this morning. Where did our 3 days go, so fast? We had good weather, so we were very happy about that. On Tuesday morning, we took the train to Riomaggiore, the southern-most of the 5 villages comprising Cinque Terre. We stepped into the little church, meandered through the winding streets. We were happy to see that, by the public water fountain, hung a doggie dish, so the dogs could have fresh water, too.

After doing some window shopping, we walked from Riomaggiore to Manarola, though the Via Dell’ Amore. We stopped just before reaching Manarola for some refreshment. That really wasn’t necessary, as the distance between the 2 villages is only about a mile. But it was such a beautiful place to stop and look out at the sea, how could we resist?

Once we finished our tour of Manarola, we had to take the train back to Vernazza, as the trails are closed between Manarola and Corniglia and from there to Vernazza. Only the beginning stretch that we had just walked, and the trail between Vernazza and Monterosso are open.
