Things to Do 


The Biggest Beach in Cinque Terre 

Monterosso is the largest and resort-orientated town in the Cinque Terre. The well renowned village is set beneath the mountains, rich with vineyards and lemon farms. The stretch of coast occupies a vast selection of delicious Italian restaurants, Gelato spots and an excellent area of beach. If you fancy a relaxing day at the beach and a bite to eat on the promenade this is the place to go. It’s the only village in the Cinque Terre which boasts a proper stretch of beach, rather than a port or a cove. You can walk through the picturesque town and through the medieval tunnel, which brings you out to a separate side of eateries and cute shops to be explored.


Sundowner Spot


Dine at the Torre Aurora 

One of Monterosso’s most memorable dinner settings is built on top of a 13th Century tower. The charming terrace has stretching views over the coast, with full size trees planted amongst the tables and scattered in fairy lights, opting for a delightfully intimate dining experience. The freshly prepared seafood and mouth-watering meat dishes are excellently paired with Italian wines from the region. It’s also a popular spot for the staple afternoon Aperitivo or a post-dinner digestive.
