Part of the Cinque Terre National Park (comprised of five villages) in Liguria, Manarola is reputed to be the most colourful city in the world. With its vibrant buildings jostling for space, the town that is famed for its Manarolese dialect resembles an artist’s palette. Every year, visitors flock here to hike between the five villages, with numbers soaring in peak season. Don’t miss a visit of the Church of San Lorenzo, beautiful both inside and out with its sweeping views of Manarola and neighbouring towns.
This cosy two-bed apartment overlooks the town, ocean and, perhaps most notably, a stunning local vineyard across the road. Thanks to this superhost’s connection to said vineyard, don’t be surprised if you find a bottle of Manarola’s finest vino waiting for you on arrival.
