Travel Guide To Monterosso

HOW TO VISIT IN CINQUE TERRE AREA

General Information About Monterosso

Monterosso is the largest of the Cinque Terre villages, along the Ligurian coast in Northwest Italy, which makes it a good place to stay while you are in the area. Monterosso al Mare has numerous small hotels, many restaurants, a beautiful beach and easy access to the hiking trails, train service and ferry boats that unite this wonderful coastal collection of five quaint towns. Exploring Italy’s most remote and romantic stretch of Riviera, we visit five tiny port towns: dramatic Vernazza, surrounded by vineyards; reclusive Corniglia, high on its bluff; pastel Manarola; hardscrabble Riomaggiore; and the pint-sized resort of Monterosso. Fishing for anchovies, sipping wine out of rustic barrels, and savoring twinkling Mediterranean vistas, we enjoy the ultimate Riviera adventure.
