Cinque Terre and surroundings from another point of view

The Cinque Terre tour will take you through unconventional places, like  sanctuaries, vineyards grown on terraces, villages perched up in the hills overlooking the sea, while tasting the authentic local foods and wines. You can chose between three itineraries that will let you experience the Cinque Terre landscape from a new perspective, while having fun and without effort.

TOUR # 1 Discovering Baie del Levante: Framura e Bonassola

We leave Levanto taking minor roads in the direction of Genova. The first 6 km climb, and the slower pace helps us to fully enjoy the wonderful views. On reaching the top we stop briefly to view the red marble quarries,
a stone typical of this area. We continue with the sea to our left and stop at the village of Costa, the highest of the villages that make up Framura. [a typical Ligurian group of five separate hamlets lying between the mountains and the sea.] here we visit the church of St Martin which dates from the 12th century and the Guards Tower from the Carolingian Period (10th Century) built on a sort of sea terrace. Continuing around Mount Serro we descend to Setta and Anzo, other tiny villages with their respective towers, down to the little port of Framura. We return to the cycle path taking the “lift above the seas“, rising slowly and with a cool breeze we pass Bonassola, where we visit the parish church of Saint Catherine, before returning to Levanto. And all this without missing a typical Ligurian meal of a glass of white wine and a strip of delicious focaccia.

PRICE 58.00 EUROS PER PERSON

Booking fee 15.00 euros per party

TOUR #2  Shrines and Vineyards, cycling in the Cinque Terre

Starting from Levanto, we cross the road to La Spezia and climb up to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Soviore at 470m. After a rest and a few photos we continue up the Passo del Termine where the climb ends, and here we ride along the coast enjoying spectacular views up to the turn off for Vernazza. A short stop in the shade of century old trees at the shrine of Our Lady of Reggio, before the steep and exciting descent. In front of us, viewed from on high, is The Cinque Terre; the Ligurian crop terraces, vineyards, olive trees and the sea. The day ends with a return to Levanto by train from Vernazza station.
It’s possible end our tour with a local wine and food tasting in a wonderful terrace by the sea, with an additional cost of € 15,00

PRICE 65.00 EUROS PER PERSON

Booking fee 15.00 euros per party

and here we are, Vernazza!

TOUR #3 Levanto valley through its hamlets

The first historic reference does not refer to the center of Levanto but to the valley. The fertile valley that crowns the town was the seed of Levanto’s early development. We visit the small villages, rich in history, starting from the west with a first stop at the Convent of the Annunciation. We hear about mule paths, salt roads and early commerce, small chapels and Romanesque churches, olive oil and wine. We’ll end the tour with a glass of local wine.

PRICE 45.00 EUROS PER PERSON
