The village of Monterosso is one fifth of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Cinque Terre. It’s also the biggest of the five cliff side villages and is well equipped for visitors.
There’s two distinct parts to Monterosso - the old part with narrow lanes and traditional fishermen’s cottages, and the newer part where you’ll find ample amenities including plenty of shops, waterfront restaurants and the beautiful Fegina beach. With its own train station, this little town makes it easy for visitors to explore the surrounding areas. The Cinque Terre train connects the coastal villages or you can head further afield to towns like Sestri Levante and Rapallo.
