This is part of an old cemetery above Monterosso. The view from the top is awesome, but it is a bit of a hike. It was very interesting though.

Walked up here to see the statue and views. It's worth it if you're fit enough, but will get your heart pumping. Good panorama our to sea.

The monument is located up on the hill. So it’s great to walk up the hill and get your heart rate going. It takes about 10 minutes or less to hike up depending on how fast you go. You will definitely enjoy the view from...More

I am big fan of St. Francis and this is a great monument to him with one of his beloved animals. It’s a climb up some steps but the view is magnificent. Don’t miss it.

The view high up there is gorgeous. The climb up there can be physically taxing but you will be well compensated with the gorgeous view. You can easily snap some of the best pictures high up there. I am glad that I made this journey...More

This statue is easy to find and not that difficult to get to. Once there, you get a fantastic panoramic view in both directions up and down the coastline as well as over the old and new parts of Monterosso. Well worth the climb!

Quite a steep hill, a nice statue, great views over the town of Monterosso. You would climb up there for the view rather than the statue.

It's a bit of a hike up from the town to see not only the statue, but as many have noted, the great views from the safe platform surrounding the statue.

Hi The path was fairly solid and I would say would take no more than 30 minutes. It's a great view from the top and definitely worth the hike. Regards, Clare.

I am Kenneth from Singapore. I shall be spending a brief stopover on 2/1/2017 in Monterosso on 3/1/2017 (as I have business trip in Milan through the new year - and I only could afford a day train trip from Milan to Monterosso - my train departs Milan 0800am and arrives Monteross 11am) - so I probably could only spend 4-5 hours and have to catch the train at 5pm to return to Milan - hence, I would be most appreciative if you could advise me - how and where is the easiest start point to climb up the hill that lead to Statue of St Francis Assisi in the old town, and how much time (or how long the round trip up and down the hill on foot) roughly it takes from start to the point where the panoramic spot that offers breathtaking view of the old town and coastal areas. Thank you in advance for your valuable precious information

It will take about 30 minutes to climb to the top to see the statue of the saint. It is located near Old Town tunnel. Do not go past the tunnel but climb the path that leads to the top. As stated, many great views from... More
