Fivestones is a very impressive line of souvenirs, all made with natural materials like wood, stones, twigs, twine, nails, paper and cork.
This is a line coordinated and articulated, high aesthetic quality, easily recognizable.
Fivestones is the creativity of Italian industrial production as opposed to the Asian market.
In many Cinque Terre shops, infact, there are just souvenir that come from China, thailand and Corea.
My souvenir are made in Italy, from italian handmade. Original and exclusive.

What to buy: Orginal and autentic Souvenir hand made in Italy
this is a very small, very nice center of town store. if you lived in manarola you would have to shop there, visiting it is a nice place to pick up a bottle of wine or some cheese and sandwich stuff. a little bit of everything, not much english going on so even more fun. plus it is the place to catch the bus to volastra or anywhere else it goes. cool place and not expensive at all.
We came across this great shop in Manarola which sold a range of local and regional produce and lots of Cinque Terre wine.
There was a large range to choose from, but as we were mid hike, we didn't end up buying anything this time, but would certainly return, especially if staying in Manarola in the future.
What to buy: Why not pickup some anchovies, pesto, olive oil, pasta....and some wine of course!
Delis that sell the traditional goodies. Refrigerated sections with cheese and meats. Dry goods, pasta sauces and rice. Also pastries and chocolates.
What to buy: There are several delis in Manarola that sell the local specilality pesto made in and around Portofino and Cinque Terra. I bought a few jars purely by accident. Then I was told by an Italian friend of mine that Cinque Terra is known for their pesto. It is extremely delicious, and if you can pack it well so it won't get broken, it makes great gifts for friends backhome. I love pesto, so this was a real treat.
What to pay: 5 euro a jar
The tourist office for the Cinque Terre is in Riomaggiore. Right next to the train station.
Here you can buy souvenirs or use the internet (although it is a bit expensive)
