Levanto, the village just outside the Cinque Terre, stretches on a green plan as far as the sea, giving through the clash of colour between land and water a natural sensation of beauty.
Surroundid by many hamlets built up of each other very closed houses, Levanto embraces a wide gulf, made at first of rocks, then of beaches interrupted in the summertime by little bathing facilities. But Levanto is not only summertime, thanks to its historic centre and to its paths, which connect it with the Cinque Terre, offers to the tourist an unlimited season.
The surrounding territory and the Cinque Terre paths are today Regional Park, that's why Levanto has kept its natural beaty, its ways and customs, its farming culture, that hasn't been modified by the man despite the evolution of the times. Let's take a look at the famous "terracing", made in order to stop the acclivous ground, built up of "dry walls", mingling with the landscape and looking like the "Great wall of China". Walking on tha ways upon the sea or by comfortable and frequent trains connecting to the Cinque Terre, the tourist will not have any more to worry about parking and can leave his car during the longed holiday at home!!!
To art-lovers Levanto offers some important medieval buildings, typical streets in town with grotesque paintings, wich we may admire walking or, also, the medieval Loggia, ancient seamarket and great resource of the village, with a recently discovered and restored fresco of the year 1000. We suggest you visiting the Church with nave of S. Andrea, second town of the village, and a worked rose on the white murble fašade from Carrara. then comes the imposing castle in strategic position.
Levanto's sea is an immense natural gymnasium for al aquatic sports; the village offers also a wide choice of accomodation facilities, such as hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse and campings (CAMPING 5 TERRE), up to meeting all kinds of demands in every season and longed for by the stranger tourist.
