This was our second trip to monterosso and we didn't see this the last time so wanted to make sure we did this time around. It was a nice walk from the old section of town to the end of the beach. This is not something life changing but it's a nice thing to see in a tourist town without much else in the way of sightseeing spots, excepting the walking trails of course.

Il Gigante is a beautiful statue in Monteresso al Mare. You can't miss it if you continue for the hiking trail to Levanto. It is quite massive and takes your breath away at first sight.

We missed this on our last visit to Monterosso al Mare as it sits on the beach to the far left of the town. It is a beautiful ancient monument and worth the walk. From the ferry drop off it is only a 10 min walk along the waterfront.

This huge statue at the end of Monterosso is interesting to see. It is a short walk to the end of town. We wanted to climb up near the statue, but it looks like it is on private property and it was gated upon our arrival. There were a few other tourists trying to get in the gate when were were there as well. The hours the gate is open isn't publicized.
