Le Cinque Terre – Monterosso

Le Cinque Terre – Monterosso

First view of Monterosso

Monterosso looks pretty impressive – there is a beach, an old town, and a new town … and of course the gorgeous views of the mountains going into the sea. Of course, it also means that Monterosso was pretty crowded … with really loud obnoxious Italian teenagers. yick. It wasn’t actually warm enough to enjoy the beach – which I guess was a blessing because it kept the crowds down some. :)

Another Gorgeous view of Monterosso

Rocky Landscape in Monterosso

I think my favorite part of Monterosso was the walk from the new town (where the train arrived) to the old town. We wandered away from the beach to some really cool landscapes where the green met the rocks and the rocks met the sea.

Monterosso - new town

We finished up our visit to Monterosso with a light lunch – after learning the hard way that apparently if you want lunch with a view you have to reserve in advance! Nevermind the fact that the tables were empty, would be empty until 130, and we were in & out well before then. That’s all a detail. And we were off to Riomaggiore …

    It is very annoyingwhen they won’t let you sit and have lunch. It has happened to us too.
    We had a great lunch at Lo Scoglio right on the beach at Monterosso, but it was before the season.
