Being a photographer in Manarola
is a huge privilege. This little town in Cinque Terre
has one of the most amazing views of all the villages around this location. The amazing Gulf of Manarola
is perfect for photo shootings and it has a lot of great spots for every occasion.
If you have the chance to visit this amazing place, we have prepared a short list of the most beautiful photoshooting
locations in Manarola:

The sea of Manarola (and all other villages of Cinque Terre) is great. Here you can find gorgeous cliffs where you can have a great and characteristic engagement or wedding photos You’ll remember its intense blue colour for the rest of your life!

There is a beautiful street that goes up to the hill that leads to the cemetery of Manarola, from which you can get a beautiful point view of the town. It’s a little bit hard to get to, but it worth all the effort.

This little bar is located exactly on the hill that faces the gulf. As photographers in Manarola we’ve shot many wonderful proposal and engagement photos in this location.

This beautiful terrace is located right below the Nessun Dorma and goes all around the cliff. From here you’ll have a wonderful view of all the Ligurian sea.
