MONTEROSSO AL MARE, ITALY (Cinque Terre)

Monterosso al Mare was the last village we visited.  It had a different feel than the other village.  The town is divided into two distinct parts: the old town and the new town. The two areas are divided by a single tunnel that caters to pedestrians and there are very few cars in the town.  The beach at Monterosso runs along most of the coast line and is the only extensive sand beach in the Cinque Terre.

Monterosso is a small town that in the summer months is overrun by tourists but there were very few tourist when we were there. We didn’t even have to stand in line to get the  lemon gelato that everyone recommended and I am pleased to report it was wonderful.
If you missed my post on Cinque Terre, you can check them out here: RiomaggioreManarola, and Vernazza.
