Our guide to the best places to stay in Monterosso, Cinque Terre.
Monterosso is the biggest village in the Cinque Terre and is the only village with a proper beach. You can rent sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach – there is also a selection of little beach bars. There are two parts to Monterosso – the ‘new town’ which is where the train station and the beach is located. A short walk away is the ‘old town’ which has narrow cobbled streets and lots of cute restaurants and cafes. The larger hotels are in the ‘new town’ while most of the airbnb’s are in the old town. Monterosso definitely has the most accommodation options, and is in my opinion the most family-friendly village in the Cinque Terre.
