Monterosso is one of the villages of Cinque Terre, in Italy. Travelling northward, Monterosso is the fifth village and the most touristed, since it boasts a proper beach and is home to several larger, fancier hotels. Like the other villages, it is a shining gem along the sea.
Monterosso is easily accessible by train from nearby cities including Pisa and Genoa. Parking is somewhat limited but available if coming by car.
Monterosso is a small town which you can easily explore on foot. There are a limited number of taxis available if needed (3 as of 2014).
Neighboring towns can be accessed via the local trains or via hiking trails.
