Borgo Antico is literally the Old Town, in this case, from Monterosso al Mare, one of the five tiny towns located in Cinque Terre National Park, in the North of Italy. This old town is very nice and you can walk and see the buildings. Also, here you can see the main church of the town: Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista, in the center of the old town or some other places like Garibaldi Square, where children can play a lot in the big children park. Very nice old town, but not the best one (better for me Riomaggiore, Vernazza and Manarola). (See also Parco Nazionale Cinque Terre)

Monterosso al Mare is the northernmost town of the Cinque Terre. This is more of a resort with beaches, restaurants, small shops and cafes and is the largest of the Cinque Terre. We arrived by ferry from Portovenere at the end of an exhausting day. Frankly we only spent about one and a half hours here and boarded the last ferry back. All the other four cinque terre towns are visible from Monterosso. Here you have the old town (centro storico) and the new town (fegina). We walked from the pier up Via Roma and we had a coffee in Piazza Matteotti stopping at the Church of St John the Baptist along the way. I can mention some other sights here although we did not visit them.Capuchin Church and Hilltop Cemetary, for great views, Oratory of the Dead. There is also a public beach in Fegina and a private one from Centro Storico. Hikes start from here but it is better to check which ones are open. On October 25 2011 Monterosso was hit by a flash flood that destroyed everything in its path and buried it under 3 metres of mud. The resilience of the local people here made sure that the town would rise again so they could continue to live and work again and we could visit and enjoy this town.

My wife and I stayed in the Borgo Antico of Monterosso al Mare as our home base during our visit to the Cinque Terre this past November. We visited four of the five towns and discovered that the Borgo Antico of Monterosso was less touristy than the other towns. We were there the last day of the season and very few people were in the Borgo. Many shops were closed but some of the cafes were open. We were one of two couples staying in our hotel on its last day of the season. It made our visit more relaxed and quiet.

Monterosso is a perfect old town, with lovely restaurants, beautiful waterfront, and easy access to trains. Easy to walk.

Packed with tourists (like me) but this is definitely the better half of monterosso. The other half is more beachy, this half is more historical and cozy. It's a good place to wander and to grab a meal. I'd avoid the other half entirely, if that were possible.
