Levanto is the perfect place to stay while visiting the Ligurian coast. In this small town you will find plenty of shops and restaurants. The long, sandy beach is a surfer’s paradise.

It’s also an ideal starting-point for day-trips to many interesting places along the Riviera. From Levanto you can easily reach the Cinque Terre villages Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiorte by train in a few minutes or by boat.

The terraced, seaside villages of Cinque Terre offer some of the best hiking in Italy. A network of walking paths connects Levanto with the National Park of Cinque Terre.

The former railroad tunnels have been restored and now you can walk or bike from Levanto to the charming villages of Bonassola and Framura.
