The Cinque Terre is a Unesco World Heritage site where visitors can admire a unique dry stone wall terraced landscape worked by man through centuries, overlooking the sea as well as five marine hamlets:
THE CINQUE TERRE
One of the best ways to see the Cinque Terre is on foot.
The paths linking the various villages offerspectacular views of the cliffs, coasts and cultivated terraces.
We would like to describe the walks you can take starting from La Sosta di Ottone III.
Arrangements can be made for a Taxi or Minivan to drive you back up to La Sosta di Ottone III from Levanto.
First of all, a quick suggestion:
if you are a keen walker you can walk from La Sosta to Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore in one day.
The walks become progressively easier as you get to the end towns of Manarola and Riomaggiore.
Once there, you can catch the train back to Levanto or Monterosso.
For precisely this reason, if you would like to take it easy, we suggest to start from the end and walk back towards La Sosta di Ottone III.
Each town has a railway station and you can visit the other towns by hopping on the train and return to Levanto once you have finished.
This is a very special experience:
viewing the Cinque Terre and the Ligurian Riviera from the sea allows you to discover the full beauty of the pastel coloured villages as well as the impressive man made landscape surrounding them.
Rent a boat with Skipper Marco Scaramuccia or join him for a day excursion, minicruise or night boat experience.
In season weather permitting, ferries run regularly every day from Levanto to Porto Venere and dock at all of the Cinque Terre Villages, except for Corniglia.
A timetable is available in the guest’s room book at La Sosta.
