Cinque Terre: Monterosso

By Cubie - August 15, 2010

It is the largest of the 5 and has long stretch of beach, that is said to be a major attraction to this village. We were there in May, it was not the high tourist season yet. There were quite a fair bit of people but definitely not as crowded yet.

The sand wasn't those described as white, fine sand but I like how mountains are lined up and looked as if it was layered.

We walked to the all the way to the centre of the village...

.. till we stumbled upon a small lane leading to a quieter path of greenery.

At that time, we didn't know where this would bring us, in fact we thought we might be trespassing somewhere we shouldn't be as we were told that the walking paths were closed. However we did walked a bit but turned back, that was probably wise as we did not have any walking map with us.

We then walked back to the train station and hopped on the train to Riomaggiore. Before there... another look on Monterosso.
