Out of all the places I visited in Monterosso Al Mare this was my favorite view of the Ligurian Sea. There's a neat little window covered in bars that people attach there luggage locks to and some are quite old I thought that was pretty neat.

Lots of stairs, just remember that. However, the view is unparalleled and a much better way to get from Old Town to New Town. I cannot stress enough how spectacular the view is and how much you do not want to miss it!

Great view of the coastline from the top, if you don't mind a good climb to get there. Worth the trip to the top.

We LOVED going up into this tower for the views! Well worth the 1.50 euros and the small staircase. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to go up

The clock tower, which we could see from our room at Stella della Marina, was a picturesque frame for the sea beyond. As our host Miki said, it's always ten to nine on that clock.

The climb up the steps to the Tower is a bit of a challenge but its a fun thing to do in Monterosso. We went on a rainy day and of course the steps were slippery. The castle ruins were not much to see, but the view from there is beautiful. Just below the castle is a small church and... More
