Manarola is one of the 5 cliff towns that hover over the Ligurian Sea in northern Italy’s Italian Riviera. This place is magical with it’s pastel colored buildings hanging from the vertical hills. It’s part of a National Park with hiking trails between each town. You can’t really drive in these small towns, but a train seems to stop every 20 minutes to take you to the next town. We stayed in Levanto and commuted to each town to photograph and enjoy where ancient Romans use to vacation. East of the Cinque Terre, a town called Levanto is a great place to stay with everything Italy has to offer; great restaurants ,B&B’s, beaches, shops, parks and tree-lines streets all tucked in a picturesque cove. Check it out on Google Earth.
This HDR shot was a walk half-way through town. Had to move trash cans and and as usual patiently wait for tourist to finish enjoying the spot before I could shoot. Part of the job. But what better place to just hang-out enjoying the moment.
