Cinque Terre: Monterosso

At first, I had mixed feelings about Monterosso. We came here on our first day running through puddles with rain pouring down on us harder than any other times I’ve ever experienced in my entire life. It’s one of those moments that I’m trying to forget because the 2nd time we came, Monterosso was beautiful. I remembered it very well, the sun had gone down and the light reflected this nice blue tone. On top of that, the sea was as calm as I could’ve imagined it to be. It almost felt like the storm never came.monterosso-8715.jpgmonterosso-8716.jpgOut of the 5 villages, Monterosso is the only one with a proper beach in Cinque Terre. It’s got 2 sides, the new and the old town. My favorite was definitely the old town. You can reach it by walking to the left side upon arriving by train and then pass through a tunnel that will lead you to the old town.

In the old town, you will find lots of different shops and restaurants. V and I ended up buying the limoncino which Cinque Terre is known for specialising in.monterosso-8683-2.jpgmonterosso-8692.jpgmonterosso-8710.jpgmonterosso-8703.jpgOther things to see in Monterroso is sitting by the port and really take in the views.monterosso-8723.jpgEntrance to the old town city center.monterosso-8686.jpgCity Centermonterosso-8687.jpgmonterosso-8704.jpg
