Hi my name is Stephanie Noblett and I recently returned from a trip of a life time visiting Ireland, Italy and the States. Italy was a stunning country intensely seeped in history and tradition. The Vista’s were breathtaking, the people lovely and the life style I’d love to adopt. One of the highlights of our trip was a visit to the Cinque Terre.
Manarola was a quaint village and was exactly what I imagined. The streets were rough and cobbled and narrow alley ways shot off randomly. A church built in the 11th century starts my journey down a reasonably steep path down into the village. You cannot imagine that a village being built perched (teetering) on sheer cliff face, that was a sight to beyond. No vehicles are allowed into the village so the Italians have a novel idea and use an electric mini van.
Would I love a return trip to Italy in general, bring it on.
