Things To Do In Cinque Terre
People often think of the 5 Terre as an exceptional natural place, a treasure chest of natural treasures that catches the eye and imprints itself in the memory. What is perhaps less well known is that this area is rich in activities to do with the family, with one’s sweetheart, or alone.

- Boat trips also with snorkelling and sunset aperitifs;

The boat trips organised by Rosa dei Venti Boat Tours, which can be booked directly online, allow you to plan your journey in detail, both in terms of time and route.
For cycling enthusiasts, on the other hand, there are many paths winding along the roads leading from Levanto to the 5 Terre. Both free and guided routes are available, with daily tours suitable for all types of cyclists, from amateurs to experts, for young and old alike.

What to see in Levanto?
Often considered the ‘Gateway to the Cinque Terre’, Levanto is an excellent starting point for anyone wishing to visit Liguria and northern Tuscany. Let us see what could be a possible travel itinerary starting from our town:
- It is easy to reach the Cinque Terre by boat, bicycle, train or even on foot (it is best to avoid the car);
- Heading south is La Spezia and Portovenere, as well as numerous other villages set in nature;
- Heading north-west is Sestri Levante, overlooking the Baia del Silenzio and the Gulf of Tigullio;
- Bonassola and Framura, delightful places of cultural and other interest, can be reached on foot, by bicycle, train or boat going north.
The hinterland, often unjustly left aside, should not be forgotten. It takes very little to find yourself in the Val di Vara, an enchanted landscape where the land shapes habits and needs. The houses become sturdier and the roofs thicker, so as to better retain the heat and fight the snow. The terraces cultivated with olive trees and vines, typical of the coast, here give way to pastures and the cultivation of potatoes, beans and other legumes. It only takes a few minutes by car to visit these fascinating locations.
From Levanto it is possible to visit some of the most important cities in central and northern Italy. Just take the train to Genoa and perhaps visit its aquarium, one of the largest in Europe. Going south, on the other hand, you can admire Pisa, home to some of the world’s most famous monuments and architecture. And then there is Lucca, which over time has become an increasingly popular attraction for young people thanks to its events dedicated to comics and pop culture. Finally, lovers of historical finds can go as far as Pontremoli, in the heart of Lunigiana, home to an important archaeological museum.
Heading north up the coast, it is possible to reach Rapallo and Chiavari, Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino.
