For those traveling by car today (and quite possibly the next few days) to the villages of Manarola, Corniglia & Vernazza, you’ll need a Plan B. A large landslide between Riomaggiore & Manarola is currently blocking all traffic on the provincial road that connects the villages. This is a result of yesterday’s torrential downpour (although the slide actually didn’t happen until this afternoon).
- Park in La Spezia and train to your village of choice.
- Park in Portovenere and take the ferry to the villages (don’t forget the ferries don’t stop in Corniglia and ferries run dependent on sea & weather conditions).
- Park in Monterosso and take the train or ferry.
I will post more details as soon as they become available.
