Italy. Cinque Terre. Monterosso al Mare.

After visiting Riomaggiore and Vernazza I headed to Monterosso al Mare, the most northern of the 5 villages of Cinque Terre and the only one with a long and sandy beach. Needless to say I spent most of my afternoon there.

A hill divides the town into two parts, arriving at the Monterosso train station you’ll be in the bigger and a bit more crowded part of it. The road along the beach leads you through a tunnel to the smaller half of the town, which was the one I preferred and where I spent 15€ for an umbrella and a sunbed. A bit too expensive for my taste (or budget) but worth every cent.
