Nessun Dorma — The best aperitivo in Cinque Terre

The wine bar Nessun Dorma in Manarola is the best place for aperitivo in Cinque Terre (and it is regarded by many as being among the top places in all of Italy). The history of the place is simple, and it started in 2014 when Simone decided to take part in the competition for the management of this public space in Manarola. Much to his and his family’s surprise, Simone won the competition. So, the summer of the same year Nessun Dorma welcomed its first customers. Simone named it after his favourite aria (as sung by Luciano Pavarotti) from Puccini’s opera “Turandot”. After all, the man with the beard, the logo of the bar, is Pavarotti from a sketch based on a photograph from his house in Modena. All the rest is the story of a wine bar that became world famous in the years that followed.
