Reaching Hotel Porto Roca is simple for our customers because we offer, included in the price of the room, transfer from the railway station or parking area. The hotel is located in the pedestrian area with limited traffic. From March to November in Monterosso private cars cannot circulate, only by public transport is allowed. This makes Monterosso much more comfortable for the foot traffic of tourists, but can also be a bit of a discomfort when unprepared for transport upon arrival. This is no problem for our clients, simply call us upon arrival and within minutes a taxi will come to take you to the hotel.
Monterosso has two parking lots, one at the beginning of the restricted traffic in old town and the other at the beginning of restricted traffic in Fegina. Both options are more or less equally distant form the hotel. We recommend that you use to the "Parking Fegina", where a larger space for your car is always guaranteed. The cost is about € 18 per day. There are also special weekly or monthly rates.
