Monterosso al Mare is the most densely populated village and the last of Cinque Terre.The village is divided in new town (where the railway station is located) and old town (where you can find the old fishermen’s houses, shops and restaurants), separated from the first one with a gallery dug in the mountain and from the Aurora Tower, on the San Cristoforo hill.In the new town, Fegina, there are sandy beaches and beach resorts –unlike the narrow small ports of the other villages. The village has a beautiful boardwalk skirted by shops and small seafood restaurants. The walk carries on on one side up to a rock spur, on which a statue of Neptune, called the Giant, has been carved, and on the other side, to the old town and historical centre, where we discover the most peculiar features of the five villages: colourful tower-houses, Carrugi (narrow streets), and the ruins of the ancient Orbetello castle, almost on the sea.
Famous thanks to the salting of its freshly fished anchovies -known as Pan du mà- and its lemons -used to prepare delicious marmalades and, most of all, Limoncino-, Monterosso is surrounded by the green vineyards and beautiful olive groves.Animated and coloured also at night, in the village there is plenty to do: parties and festivals all summer long!Find more about Cinque Terre and their amazing outskirts on our network, book the activities and the most particular adventures, eat in the best restaurants and permit to a Travel Angel to spoil you with unusual itinerary.
