The Aurora tower was built in the XVI century by the Republic of Genoa, to defend pirate raids of the Saracens. The building is located at the end of the Cape, on the Hill of St. Christopher, in the center between Fegina and Monterosso.

Just opened for a few days when we got there, but they had already gotten service down to a T. Attentive and friendly service. Food still needs a bit of work - my pasta was too salty. Portions are small by Italian standards, and I...More
