The title gives you a bit of an idea of what to expect but it's still worth a visit. Quite a few other tourists had the same idea but, because it's reasonably large, this wasn't an issue as far as being squashed. Lots of opportunities...More

Loved this although my favourite was still the Venazza of the 5 Terre. Monterosso is by far the biggest with lots more restaurants and shops Ferry takes you to all towns at 18 euro per person hop on and off

What a quaint sweet place. We shopped. We walked. A really beautiful place right on the ocean. Stopped a while and put our toes in the ocean. Spent a nice day there.

We visit as last, and i am not able to understand where is the speciality. It is a normal beach town, with nice beach but nothing more. If you plan to stay in cinque terre in a confortable location, magbe this is the best choice.

It is a good idea to remember that during the day the old town is saturated with tourists, and I mean saturated: don't stop or there will be a domino effect. This is not even main tourist season (that will be July and August) and...More
