Manarola, Italy - It's in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northern Italy. A unique place called 'Cinque Terre ' (which means Five Towns literally and this is one of the town, they are right next to each other). If you go to Tuscany, you can make a day trip there.
The pastel sherbet shades of coastal homes in Italy. They bring to mind the movie The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit, written by Ray Bradbury and based on his short story "The Magic White Suit" as published in the Saturday Evening Post. Its plot is not dissimilar to that of the novel and movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Set in Greece, the story's setting is not unlike this lovely island.
