Levanto Things to Do

  • Peaceful Exercise

    Dont miss out a morning walk if staying in Ridarolo. Early is always the best time to go if you want to make sure you have the mountains to yourself. Watch out for the figtrees...

  • Just relax!

    There is not a lot in Levanto in the way of tourist activities but it is the perfect place for a family holiday and to unwind. There is a really lovely beach, a few ice cream shops and some nice restaurants. That's all I would want in a holiday!

    Liguria is famous for its fresh seafood and this is a good place to get it. It is a small place but roomy enough with the tables outside. We had a lovely friendly waitress who had some English. The setting was a narrow pedestrian street in the older section of town.

    Favorite Dish: GF had the carpaccio of tuna for a starter, pansotti con noci (similar to ravioli and with a walnut sauce) and a grilled fish. For dessert he had panna cotta with a chocolate sauce.

    I had a caprese salad, minestrone and grilled prawns. For dessert, I had panna cotta with fruit (raspberries and blueberries).

    Along with a 1/2 litre of local red wine and a bottle of water, the total was 64 Euro.

    Of course, as in most places in Italy, parking is a nightmare. In Lévanto everything is a pay parking. If you plan to park by the seaside/beach, not only that it will be impossible to find a pplace, but it will be hideously expensive even if you're lucky to get one. The rate is 1,50 EUR per hour, or, 1 EUR per HALF AN HOUR!!! So, if you plan an all day on the beach, prepare at least 10-15 EUR, only for the parking.

Levanto Warnings and Dangers

    One morning we went to buy our Cinque Terre day tickets, which cost ý10.80 for the two of us. I gave the man at the station a ý20 note and he gave me ý4.20 change in coins. I was waiting for the ý5 note ( I saw him take it out of the till) but he seemed to be finished with me and anxious to get to the next customer. GF stepped in at that stage and asked how much the tickets were (we already knew but GF was trying to make his point). The main knew he had been caught and took another note from the till and gave it to us. GF told me afterwards that he had watched the man 'palm' the note under his elbow. The man thought we hadn't seen it and was hoping for a nice big tip.

    We noticed this particular man was not wearing the Trenitalia uniform, although he was behind the ticket counter and selling tickets. The staff who served us who were wearing the official uniform were not only very pleasant, but extremely helpful. This was just the one bad apple in the bunch.

  • Turquoise

    When the sun comes up, the sea has enchanting turquoise colour! It changes to lead when it's cloudy, unfortunately...The rock that you can see far behind is a favourite spot for diving, however, it's fatal as on the top of it there is a vase with flowers with a note for someone who died jumping from it. So, be careful! Much better use is to just...

  • pebbles & sand

    In Lévanto you'll find all types of beach - sandy, pebbled, rocky or mixed. Sandy is very rare, though, and in most occasions it will be a small part together with pebbles. Also, you can find this ultra small almost sand alike pebbles.

  • Scuba divers

    There are PLENTY of scuba divers in Lévanto (in Italian they're called simply "sub" :-) but this guys were sooo FUNNY! Have you ever seen scuba divers crawling out of the sea?! I haven't! All the others were walking out normally, but these twop were hilarious!
