4. Manarola, Cinque Terre
Manarola is one of the smaller towns in the iconic Cinque Terre, but don’t be fooled into thinking there’s not much to see and do. After hopping off the train, grab yourself some of that famed Italian gelato, take a dip in the Mediterranean sea and pose up a storm in front of this colourful little beauty. For a little ramble to work off that ice cream, head on the ‘Lovers’ Trail’ that goes between Manarola and Riomaggiore, which is especially picturesque at sunset.
