Monterosso

Monterosso or Monterosso al Mare is the last of the 5 villages in Cinque Terre that I had the pleasure to visit.

Unfortunately minutes after we arrived the skies opened up and a downpour ensued. Monterosso is the only village that has a sand beach in Cinque Terre and despite the weather there were plenty of beach goers.  Now I don’t usually wimp out because of the weather but it was late in the afternoon and the rain just wouldn’t let up so we decided to cut our visit short and head back to Manarola and have dinner. I did mange to get a few shots though 🙂

      • I agree. I’ve spent numerous trips to Central and Northern Italy, and has it all the trimmings of a memorable holiday.

    • Thanks Laurie. I’m not 100% sure. It started to pour just after I took this shot and we headed in the other direction. There were no signs indicating what it was.
