Levanto is a gorgeous town situated in a green valley that gives onto the sea; it is a famous tourist centre with a mild climate even during the winter. Winters are always not so harsh and during the summer there is always wind, the perfect climate for the holiday season.
Levanto is a typical village of the Costa Ligure. During the summer the number of its inhabitants may also redouble, a good compromise between a small village and a city.
The houses are all coloured like the typical houses in this area; the historical centre, with its typical alleys (called “caruggi”), preserved medieval ancient monuments like the Loggia, the Church of Saint Andrew, the ancient walls, the clock tower and the medieval castle.
Not far away, there are many restaurants, shops, pubs and clubs on the beach, all you need in a holiday!
The large and wonderful gulf is the flagship of this area: a perfect marriage between sand (in the central part) and rocks (in the lateral parts).
On the beach there are bathing establishments and you can make different sport activities like surf, hire boat, canoe, windsurf, fishing, diving… etc.
A functional transport network connects Levanto to the Cinque Terre, Portovenere and Portofino.
All year long trains reach the cost villages travelling among the different tunnels. From spring tourists can reach all villages also by boat, thanks to the sea connection, where they can enjoy a spectacular sight of the coast and the National Park by the sea: this section is rich in inlets, hidden beaches, dry-stone walls, terraces, cultivation and uncontaminated nature.
There are also many trails connecting the villages, from one village to another, with a wonderful sight on the cliffs.
For those who appreciate less touristic trails, but not less beautiful, there are many mule tracks in the Levanto valley among olive grooves and vineyards where they can discover wells and old mills and reach the gorgeous medieval towns on the hills.
