We are staying in the second town, Manarola, which is one of the quieter towns. It was raining pretty heavily on and off the first day...we just went down to the local cafe and ordered some focaccias, did the 'Lovers Walk' to Riomaggiore (meant to be a lovely walk, it was horrible with graffiti everywhere and people had even carved their names into the poor trees and cacti along the way...obviously too many tourists have been along here, very disappointing).
We went out for dinner to a local Manarola seafood restaurant, the food was delicious!
The next day we got up early to do the walk from Monterosso to Corniglia (it was a pretty hard walk in parts, and whole parts of the track were closed due to an avalanche...we could only walk from Monterosso to Vernazza, so had gelati then caught the train back. We caught the train back to Monterosso for dinner and I had fantastic mussels in a garlic and white wine sauce...mmm!!
Wouldn't mind coming back to this part of the world again.. I have fallen in love with Italy!!
