The Lemon Festival is an annual event held on the Saturday preceding Ascension Sunday, at the end of May.

It is celebrated with a contest for the biggest local lemon. There is also a contest of shop windows decorated with lemons, as well as live music throughout the day.

There was lemon giveaways and tasting of all sorts of lemon products available.

We had a tasty lemon gelato - yum!

Located in the old town area of Monterosso.

From the train station, walk through the tunnel, or up around the headland to get to the old town.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
