    Manarola for dinner

    August 24, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    After the boat trip we got changed. I wanted to see Manarolo.
    We caught the train and ended up at La Spezia station 🚉 in error. Caught train back to Riomaggiore. Off the train, walked down a long tunnel to the mariner.

    Riomaggiore is a steep skinny fishing town. A quick look around we found it too touristy and not enough restaurants so we caught a 4min train to the next town Manarolo.

    Manarolo is a pretty town. Walking through the back streets toward the bridge at the front.

    It was nightime with twinkling lights everywhere lending a magical atmosphere.

    I wanted to sit and eat at a restaurant looking out at the little bay below us. So we hopped in line. A short wait and were ushered to our seats. I enjoyed the pesto Gnocchi and barbecued prawns. Our waitress was attentive and fast.

    A group of men possibly on an Italian bucks night were making their way up thru the township singing. It was like a mini festival. They were all wearing calamari sunglasses! 😎

    We enjoyed a slow walk back to our precious hotel.
