Favorite thing: Monterosso al Mare is the last of the five villages along the Cinque Terre strip. It is also the most visited place, probably because it has the only sizable sand beach and the biggest hotels. Actually, Monterosso is divided in two distinct parts, the old town and the new town which is call Fegina. The dividing point is Torre Aurora where a single tunel starts which leading to the old town.

Fondest memory: Monterosso al Mare is the only village of Cinque Terre which isn't compacted in a small space and it has the only sextensive sand beach in the area of the National Park Cingue Terre. The area is also famous for its many lemon trees, white wines, grapes and olives.
In 1870 the railroad line was built which opened up Monterosso to the outside world.
