Manarola’s one of the sleepiest members of Italy’s famous Cinque Terre crowd, and this tour lets you explore the charming village under your own steam. After a guide’s dropped you off, and given you a few sightseeing tips, you’ll be able to stroll around the sea-facing settlement at your leisure. Houses come in every colour from the palette, and the shades of yellow, peach, cherry and turquoise create a pick-and-mix effect. The winding lanes are pepped up by bold bushels of flowers, ceramics shops and intricate mosaics. Head to the church square for one of the prettiest photo spots, or watch local adrenaline junkies leap into the Med from a big rock at the foot of the cliffs.
