It is a good idea to remember that during the day the old town is saturated with tourists, and I mean saturated: don't stop or there will be a domino effect. This is not even main tourist season (that will be July and August) and...More

Since we had visited Vernazza yesterday and hadn’t liked it like we thought we would we were alittle apprehensive of the crowds and touristy feel that Monterosso might have. First off we headed north when getting off the train and walked along the promenade enjoying...More

I love all of Monterosso, the old town and the new. It is spread out more than the other towns and not as crowded, especially in May. It is filled with many vendors and the smell of wonderful food and gelato. Strolling in the early...More

Monterosso has lots of shops and restaurants, as well as two beach areas. Also, there is a path up to the cemetery and a road past there with great views.

The newer section of Monterosso al Mare borders the train station area and you need to walk past the beach & headland to the old town. Narrow streets, bars, cafes, shops all along cobbled streets and a small beach area in front of the square...More

We came to Monterosso in mid-October at the end of their tourist season so there weren't any crowds but the hotels, bars and restaurants were still open (would be closing at the end of October). We were fortunate with the weather as got a few...More

It's not very big but it's worth walking around! The old town of Monterosso is totaly charming! The narrow and cobbled streets were jammed with large crowds of tourists (sadly, too much for my taste). It's filled with beautiful little boutiques, bars, cafes and old...More
