Monterosso al Mare is one of the five villages of Cinque Terre on the northwest coast of Italy. In the summer months, this beach is overrun by tourists. It is renowned for its lemons, white wines, grapes and olives. That, and the 15k+ trail that winds along the steep, often slippery coastline to connect the five villages. It makes for a great trail run or a long day hike. Be sure to stop for some of Italy's better seafood and gelato along the way.
