Very Good
Beautiful place and as we were there in the off season nice and quiet. Not many restaurants were open but found good food and drink.

Hiking the trails is great, but they are WAY MORE DIFFICULT than they sound like. We had a 1000 ft elevation gain. That is a lot of stairs!

We went off season so the city was very quiet. We found d it very peaceful and I'm sure in warm months it is a very popular spot. Beauty abounds.

Off season means no crowds and cool weather. Beautiful, peaceful, great hikes, super views, no cars!

It's a lovely seaside town with fewer hills than the other Cinque Terre villages, so it makes an excellent base for exploring the area.

Recommended in Monterosso al Mare

A lot of famous postcard like photos were taken from a hiking route (vernazza - monterosso al mare). You pay 7.5 euros for the entrance of the trail, walk from Vernazza bay area for about 20 mins towards Monterosso al mare then you will reach the photo spot!!(Promise you it really looks exactly like the post card!) All the other easier hiking trails were not open due to maintenance. Another good way is to take the ferry, photo of Riomaggiore from the ferry is amazing.

Being from Australia the beaches were nothing like we have at home in that you don't get sand, you get lots of pebbles. In saying this though the water was beautiful. It was around cool, but not cold and beautiful and clear, you could see for miles. You have to pay to use most beaches but the free ones are okay and you can still from the paying ones.

The scenery of the Cinque Terre is simply stunning. The high mountainous villages and the ancient coastal towns flanked but the iridescent blue of the Mediterranean is breathtaking

The beach was a great place to relax and swim on a hot afternoon. Water was warm and experience was refreshing - particularity after a long train trip.

Because their are no other options except the train between each town...give Corniglia a miss...after the other towns most disapproving

Sitting and gazing out the at the sea and sipping the house red wine from an outdoor balcony

Bring some snacks and water, wear sensible shoes and pace yourself!

Stuffed mussels, so delicious. Seafood risotto, so much seafood!

Clear, clean water. Great facilities if you'd like a lounge.
