The next town north of Riomaggiore is Manarola. Earlier last year I found a beautiful photo of Manarola on pinterest, which ultimately made me decide that I must visit Cinque Terre. When we finally arrived, it did not disappoint. It was that beautiful and picturesque. Although they say Vernazza is the favorite among the five for photographers, Manarola was my personal favorite.
We ended up eating at Trattoria da Billy because of a NYT recommendation. It had a gorgeous view, but the food we ordered was underwhelming. All the good food we ate everywhere else in Italy set the bar pretty high for us.
There was a giant rock you could cliff jump from in the marina area. It looked like a lot of fun!
