We need to find a place to park our car while staying for five nights in Manarola. I know it is easier without a car but we will be in the countryside before and after Manarola. Does anyone have any information about where we might park and how much it might cost?
Below is a paragraph that I got off of www.cinqueterreonline.com/tips.htm#parking
In the Cinque Terre towns there are small pay parking lots in Monterosso and Riomaggiore. During the summer, from May to August, the car park is usually full and the roads to Monterosso and Riomaggiore are closed because there is no parking available. The other villages are always closed to cars, except for the residents. There is a Taxi service In Monterosso, Vernazza and Manarola.
Levanto has many parking areas. You can find two good parking lots in Levanto: one near the railway station and the other near the sea. However, in August, even Levanto is crowded and you will need good luck to find a parking spot.
Thanks Larry. We may change our itinerary so that take the train to Pisa or Genoa, spend a night or two there and then take a shuttle to the airport.
