All About Monterosso Cinque Terre

All About Monterosso Cinque Terre

Monterosso, the largest village of the Cinque Terre.

If you want to know all about it, this is the right page! It is the one with a stunning stretch of beach right in town  and Monterosso is also the favourite among young travellers, couples and families.

The Beaches

It is the village with the longest and widest beaches of the 5 hamlets. Most of these beaches are well managed and equipped, providing umbrellas, sun chairs and showers services.

Monterosso village stretches along its beaches, only split into two parts:

Fegina, where the train station, the most recent buildings and the longest beaches lie

Paese Vecchio, the most ancient part of the village, under the Cappuccini Friars promontory.

Fegina is the “newest” area, mainly built starting from 1950’s on (with the exclusion of many old Villas such as Villa Montale), while Paese Vecchio is the most curious dating back to medieval times, such as those in Buranco area.

The entire village is lively all time of the year. Spring, Summer and early Autumn months are of course the most sparkling and bubbling in Monterosso: fun and activities are always guaranteed!
