A small gem one step away from Cinque Terre

Levanto: ancient agricultural village…merchant and maritime municipality and starting in the 1800’s a renowned tourism centre called “the gateway to the Cinque Terre”.
Its valley opens up like an amphitheatre with large vineyards and olive groves interrupted by small rural settlements that recall its history.
The residential centre with more than 5,000 inhabitants offers a wide bay, which is often the destination of surfboarders, gardens and ancient settlements of artistic and historic importance as well as a high level of hospitality with accommodations, restaurants and shops.
There are various tourism-recreational activities and gastronomic events with typical local products. It is the starting point for the main paths of the Cinque Terre and for the surrounding valley.

Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore, 5 small towns entrenched in the cliffs overlooking a transparent sea,. The realm of traditions, culture, colours and flavours where man wrenched the land from the mountain to give life to a characteristic landscape of terraces with dry-stone walls cultivated with grapevines and olive trees, kissed by the sun and lulled by the sea.
An area praised and extolled by poets and artists recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site and protected by the National Park of the 5 Terre.
