Monterosso Al Mare

Cinque Terre, Italy
Welcome to the Cinque Terre.
As the northernmost of the Cinque Terre villages, Monterosso-al-Mare (literally "Red Mountain by the Sea") is the most accessible of five. Road, rail and ferry links, and a wide choice of hotels make this an excellent base for visiting all the other villages and neighboring towns as well. This choice and accessibility comes at a price – it is the least pretty of the five. Yet that will hardly seem to matter when you're looking out to sea, or hiking the steep trail to Vernazza, the next village.
Monterosso has the largest and best equipped beach of all the Cinque Terre villages, so if some sun worship is on your vacation agenda, this is the perfect spot. As well as the opportunity to hike in the Cinque Terre national park between some of the villages, you can also take the regular trains or if seas allow, the ferry service to the other villages. Private and boat day trips provide another way to admire the villages from their most natural aspect, the sea.

JayWay Travel staff was easy to work with because they listened to what we wanted to do on our trip and planned our itinerary accordingly. I appreciated their expertise on Italy. It helped to take the guesswork out of choosing the right hotels and tours.
