Sestri Levante - Liguria
Sestri Levante - Liguria
Sestri Levante was a village already in times of the Roman empire : It was then called " Segesta Tigulliorum "
The "Isola-Peninsula " devides Baia del Silenzio ( Bay of Silence ) and the Baia delle Favole ( bay of farytales )
------------------------------------------------------------------- Btw.: The " Bay of Farytales " got it's name by H.C.Andersen
( and he is THE expert !!! )
Baia delle Favole
Baia delle Favole is on the other side of the peninsula with respect to Baia del Silenzio.
It is a much wider bay with a long (~1 km, that is long, in mountaineous Liguria) sandy beach.
In summertime it is packed with bathing huts and deckchairs, but in winter you can enjoy pleasant walks or even hang gliding from the neighbouring hills.

There is a place , up in the mountains, where you may have a great view over the Ligurian Coastline:
The small peninsula, reaching out into the sea is deviding Baia delle Favole in front and Baia del Silenzio in Sestri Levante.
In the very back will be Cinque terre on this picture, much too small to be recognized, but it might give you an idea about the special kind of cliffs on the coast, leaving only a few spots for villages to be built.
