Monterosso

In a scenery of extraordinary beauty you'll find five villages which form a territory that from centuries is known with the name of 'Cinque Terre'. They are set in a vast inlet in the extremity of Oriental Liguria.
From East to West you'll find: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza e Monterosso.
Monterosso, for its extension, number of inhabitants and services offered is the most important village. It has a beautiful beach, the only one in the "Cinque Terre".
We strongly recommend using the train to get to Cinque Terre, the roads are small and parking is limited. Monterosso is accessible by train from all over Europe. The main cities nearby are Genoa in the west (80 Km.) and La Spezia in the east (20 Km).
Arriving by train, walk out of the railway station and turn left for the historic centre. It is just a few minutes walk.

You can get to Monterosso by car through the A12 Genoa-Livorno highway, exit at Carrodano, continue till Levanto which will take you to Monterosso. Carrodano to Monterosso is a 20km narrow road.

Parking is difficult. We recommend you to follow the signals to Monterosso (not to Fegina). At the beginning of the village, 100 meters from our B&B, there is a new toll parking building (for about 100 cars) that costs 18 euros a day.
If you have heavy luggage, a taxi service will take you to destination. This service is available at the following phone numbers: 335.6165845 – 335.6165842 – 335.6280933 – 335.5873722.
