Manarola, Cinque Terre, Liguria, Italy
Manarola is a small fishing town in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northern Italy, that spills down a ravine to the wild and rugged coastline at the Ligurian sea. Manarola is one of the five tiny towns in a section of the Italian Riviera known as Cinque Terre. Cinque Terre, which translates to "five lands," refers to five villages that are all connected by a walking path: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The tiny harbor at Manarola features a boat ramp, picturesque buildings tripping down the ravine and the town's swimming hole. Although there is no real beach here, it has some of the best deep-water swimming around. A ladder up the rocks and a shower are provided for those who love a little adventuresome swimming.
