Monterosso al Mare is an ancient fishing village on the Ligurian Riviera of Levante, located between Punta del Mesco and the island of Tinetto.
The countryside of Cinque Terre is the ideal place for a holiday, thanks to hotel facilities and the characteristic restaurants where you can enjoy typical Ligurian cuisine, as well as the famous Cinque Terre wine praised even by Petrarca.
Monterosso benefits from its location close to the hills, cultivated with vineyards and olive groves, its beautiful beaches, with steep cliffs and crystal clear waters.
Do not miss the tour of the church of Monterosso, the ancient fishing villages and the Genoese style churches that showcase beautiful landscapes. In addition, between Riomaggiore and Manarola, the picturesque Via dell'Amore is cut into the hills. A beautiful idyllic walk through the green paths in the hills connects the sanctuaries of Cinque Terre, located in spectacular scenery. A typical and unique characteristic of these areas are the hanging vineyards supported by dry stone walls, a wonderful example of landscape-architecture created by man in an impervious nature.
A panoramic view of the Canal of Portovenere is also highly recommended: The natural park and marina of Cinque Terre with rare and protected flora and fauna stetches right up to this point. Numerous scenic trails are used by hikers and some stretches can be accessed on horseback and by mountain bike.
