Levanto is just north of the Monterossa and right on the Ligurian Sea. It has a beautiful, sandy beach and a lovely downtown area which boost a fishing tackle store, a bakery, several cafes and small hotels. Easy access by train to the Cinque Terre and friendly locals were the icing on the cake so to speak.
We stayed in an apartment in the Lyrica Hotel right on the town square. High ceilings, marble floors and staircases, tall French windows. I loved our hotel! In the evenings we could hear the children playing in the park and the people walking by the sea for a stroll after dinner.
Levanto is such a lovely, intimate little town we're contemplating an extended stay in the future.
