It’s winter time in the Cinque Terre!

presepe Manarola

The winter season is the perfect time to come and discover the beauty of our territory and the good food


The tradition of the Nativity is renewed in Manarola also this year. Until the middle of January thousands of lights illuminate the hill of the Three Crosses in Manarola and they give life to the bigger Nativity Scene ever. A unique opportunity to visit the Cinque Terre and to spend an unforgettable Christmas!


Even in winter you can taste delicious dishes of the ligurian tradition. You won’t miss the famous Pandolce Genovese, an art of sweet bread done especially during Christmas, castagnaccio (chestnut cake), porridge and pancakes, frittelle filled with apple and ricotta cheese, accompanied as always by a glass of 5 Terre D.O.C. white wine or the well known Sciacchetra’. For all the food lovers we offer a half day tour, including a visit of a village and a wine tasting.


Impress your friends and family and come back home by showing them your skill in preparing our most famous sauces, pesto and walnut sauce! Local restaurateurs are available to show you all the ropes. Enjoy yourself preparing the pesto sauce with a mortar and a pestle, it will be a fun and memorable experience!


A different way to discover the city of La Spezia. Join us for a walking tour which takes you outside the beaten paths and give you the opportunity to learn more about our history and traditions. The half day tour ends in a local restaurant where you can enjoy a glass of local wine such as some delicious appetizers.
