The village is separated into two halves by the old tower of Aurora. Fegina, thrives on tourism and is evident by the abundance of restaurants and hotels.
To find the old town of Monterosso, exit the tunnel or climb around a path on the hillside to emerge at the scenic Borgo Antico. Pull up at the piazza to just sit & watch the day go by.
Lunch was an all consuming thing! Stomach got in the way of mind and ordered half the menu. Anti pasta misto, Muscoli ripieni – stuffed mussels, Ligurian spaghetti al pesto, Fritto misto. Long walk and snooze required
