Monterosso. The most northern village in Cinque Terre. It is the most resort-like village and a good spot for families. We spent quite a while here feeding our craving for the ocean and some beach. The beach is quite rocky (not soft white sand like we are used to in Australia) but an amazing setting.
We took the boat from Monterosso to the the next village, Vernazza.
Vernazza was the worst damaged in the 2011 floods. Some of the photos we saw in a local shop were horrendous. Down these little alleyways you can buy large slices of pizza that are inexpensive and delicious.
It was such a gorgeous day that most people were sitting on the dock enjoying the sunshine.
And some just couldn’t resist the lure of the rocks.
Part 3 tomorrow…
