Motorway A12 Sestri Levante-Livorno or Motorway of Cisa A15 Parma-La Spezia
Motorway Exit: La Spezia-S. Stefano Magra – then follow the directions to La Spezia

USEFUL motorway link

The recommended Motorway exit to reach Manarola in the most simple and fast way is La Spezia-S.Stefano Magra, although driving from Genova over the A 12 you’ll find signs to Cinque Terre at the gates of Brugnato and Carrodano as well: these exits are commonly used to get Monterosso and Vernazza, but NOT Manarola because, although the GPS still recommend them, the road can be interrupted!

  • Once in La Spezia, which is the nearest town about 15 km form Manarola, follow the directions to Cinque Terre
  • Drive through the town via the promenade and pay attention to the signs to Cinque Terre
  • Just after the football stadium, go ahead till the traffic lights
  • Take the State Route (S.S. N°370) “Litoranea delle Cinque Terre”
  • Just after Riomaggiore there is the crossroad that goes down to Manarola
  • Near the village, along the main road, you can park for free  paying attention to the international road signs and road bans!
  • At the entrance of the village there is a paid parking with limited spaces. It is unattended in the evening/night

We inform you that MANAROLA is a small village, mostly traffic free; minibuses may circulate into town. Private cars are allowed only during the day upon a 20 minute authorization to ask at the entrance by the Parking Office.

The paid car parking is shortly before the built-up town.
