The territory of Levanto is innervated by about eighty miles of trails. In addition to the lines that connect the town to the Cinque Terre, through the national park with paths that follow the line of the coast, there is a vast network of roads that connects the 18 hillside villages with each other and with the valley floor. Almost all of the hiking trails are not difficult, they are suitable for both hikers and families devoted to walking. You will find signs indicating the distance in minutes from the closest villages.
