Levanto valley walks

A myriad of paths linking the various villages of the Levanto Valley allow walkers to explore vine filled terraces and olive groves.

The typically Ligurian rural hamlets are full of charm with their narrow streets and colorfully painted house fronts.The paths are clearly marked. In any case, with the mountain on one side and the sea on the other, it is not easy to get lost. The signs indicate the time it takes to reach a destination (not the distance).

The following is a photographic description of the walk through the Levanto Valley starting from La Sosta di Ottone III, indicating the time it takes to reach each town. The round trip will take roughly 6 hours. The pictures were taken in Summer 2004.

Almost every village has a path leading down to Levanto so it's not necessary for you to complete the whole trip if you're not interested or get tired.
