At the entrance of the Cinque Terre, Levanto is a town which, lying in a valley of green, leads to the sea offering a natural sense of beauty , thanks to the contrasting colours of the earth with water. Surrounded by a number of villages formed by groups of houses clinging to each other, Levanto opens its arms to an extended Gulf sea, formed by rocks first and then by sandy beaches interspersed with small establishments throughout the summer.
But Levanto is not only summer, with its old town and its hiking trails that connect to the Cinque Terre, offers value to an unlimited season.
The surrounding area and trails of the Cinque Terre are Regional Park, which is why Levanto has retained its natural beauty still untouched, their customs, their culture predominantly agricultural has not been altered despite the development of the times. Just look at the famous "balcony" to hold the land, most often steep and antonyms, built with "dry walls" that blend with the landscape and are equal to the majestic "Chinese wall". Walking trails on the sea or frequent train connections make you reach the Cinque Terre, making you forget cars, traffic and chaos!
For those who love art, Levanto provides key medieval buildings, the streets in the historic centre features with grotesque that one can admire by strolling, or the great medieval Loggia, the ancient market, other main seaside resort of the country, with a fresco dating back to 1000 and recently discovered and restored. Always at the age of that era, it is a must to visit the Church of St. Andrew, second settlement of the country, aisles and a central rosette worked on the facade of white marble from Carrara and even the majestic castle in a strategic position.
