Manarola, Riomaggiore and Corniglia

Vance found a new way down to the main street of Manarola, it is much easier. Only about 70 or so steps and the rest was a long ramp. It made the trip down and up much less intimidating. The plan was to head to Riomaggiore and look around, then catch the train to Corniglia and look around, have lunch and then head back to Manarola. We started out by walking along the Via del’amore, which is a flat walk […]

We head over to the ticket centre to pick up our tickets and get things going. Once we have our tickets, we get photographed on a Green Screen, (and later superimposed as if we were standing in […]
