La Via dell’Amore, the world famous scenic path that leads to Riomaggiore departs approx. 500 meters far from La Lampara. Now, due to restoration, is only partially open for one third of its total length. Access is from Manarola train station, entrance to the left of the National Park office.
La Lampara lies in a historical medieval building right over the cliff. In spring time, mostly one week in May, jelly fish land on the cliff below, releasing a peculiar smell that can be felt sometimes from the apartment as from all other apartments on the sea. It is a natural phenomenon limited just a few days during the year. We inform about this since a few years ago a customer (just one actually) lamented this problem.
Being uphill, as most of the properties in Manarola, requires that guests be in good shape and without walking difficulties.
Porterage both from the train station or from the car parking is available on request and at extra charge.
