I have spent countless hours scrolling the internet and TA trying to decide which village to stay in during our visit to CT on 17th-20th July 2018 (peak season). I think I have narrowed it down to either Monterosso or Vernazza. Most of the research I have done suggests Monterosso is the biggest town and has a more laid back/ resort style to it whereas Vernazza is more romantic and picturesque.
I was hoping to get some opinions and/or advice from anyone who has any experience staying in any of the villages that can help me make my decision.
It will be my partner and I's first visit to the CT; we are 24, love exploring, eating local food, going to the beach and taking in the culture of each city. We will be flying from Barcelona > Milan then getting the train to CT.
I look forward to hearing any suggestions or advice :)
