From its lofty position built into the cliff side, Hotel Porto Roca has some of the best views in the Cinque Terre. It’s located in Monterosso, the biggest of the five villages and at the start of some of the most picturesque walking routes in Europe.

The hotel’s superb location makes it a popular choice with travellers and the hotel’s friendly and welcoming staff ensure guests have a great time here. Every morning a sumptuous buffet breakfast is served to set you up for the day ahead – and during summer your meal can be enjoyed on the fabulous terrace. The hotel’s evening restaurant is also a popular choice with both guests and locals. It offers regional specialities like fresh pesto and fish that’s been caught in the bay below the hotel.

The hotel is surrounded by manicured gardens and terraces that hug the cliff. Among them you’ll find a stunning infinity pool with endless sea views and a small massage cabin that offers treatments (payable locally) to rejuvenate tired walkers after a day spent exploring the Cinque Terre.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins from Genoa or Pisa. Private transfers included.

Monterosso, Cinque Terre

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.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service in Monterosso.

Things to do in resort


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.
