Monterosso al Mare is the first or the last town (depending on your view) of the Cinque Terre.
It is the biggest of the five villages and for us was the starting point of our boat tour to Riomaggiore.

Personally, I did not like Monterosso at all -
it just did not fit into my picture of a typical Cinque Terre village!
And I guess Monterosso IS different!

Since we only stayed there for a short time, this page will be only a small one,
but I will try to convey a few infos and a little bit of my view of it!

    The Cinque Terre card doesn't include the train service anymore. I've just read on the site. Ciao!

    Despite not really liking this village/town you've given it a very fair write-up. And it's maybe worth a visit for the church, which looks beautiful, and that boat trip too :)

    Another awesome page about the Cinque Terre. It is among my favourite regions in Italy. Keep up the good work ... :-)

    Divided by a tunnel! How do villagers see each other? By taking the train all the time?

    a nice page about the place of 5terre that is not a lot different from the rest of Liguria, but 4terre would sound terrible, so they included Monterosso as well, I guess ;~)

    Interesting little page! Divided by a tunnel that's though.

    I agree, Monterosso is quite different to the other Cinque Terre towns - though the walk to there from Vernazza is fabulous : )
