Commonly known as the last town in Cinque Terre (as it is the northernmost town), Monterosso offers visitors a vastly different experience from the other 4 towns in Cinque Terre.
Being the only town of the 5 with ample room to lay on the beach and relax with a glass of wine, Monterosso is a couple’s perfect paradise destination. The town is also home to our favorite restaurant on the Ligurian Coast, Da Eraldo which is a bit of a hidden gem having only 5 tables in the entire place.
The town seems almost to be a cliché of what one would have in mind about an Italian coastal town. The side streets have laundry hanging from clotheslines, there are a few local cats that interact with all of the visitors, and the wine is delivered to the restaurants by bicycle on a daily basis!
