Monterosso, Cinque Terre Holidays

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.

Hotel Porto Roca is located in Monterossa – the largest of the Cinque Terre’s villages. It has some of the best views in Liguria. The superb cliff side setting means you’ll get to enjoy incredible sea views from its many terraces and infinity pool.

Things To Do


The Cinque Terre is famed for its hiking, with well-trodden paths winding along the coast between the five villages, with fantastic views along the way. We recommend setting out early and catching the train back once you’ve reached the end.


This wonderful four day itinerary allows you to experience the best of Liguria at your own pace. Based on the coastal town of Sestri Levante, it includes trips to the Cinque Terre and the famous town of Portofino where you can sample the wines, enjoy the views and explore some of the best walking trails in the area.


Explore one of the most beautiful parts of Italy by foot on this self-guided tour. Enjoy the dramatic scenery as you navigate the cliff-edge paths and explore the charming villages. A walking map is provided as well as transport and accommodation in four-star hotels.
