Trekking to Punta Mesco

We’ll start our experience from the village of Levanto; we will first enter the tiny streets of the center, discovering particularities of the village medieval structure, by now hidden, and through the observation of the natural conformation we will dive into a past of ships, struggles and trades.

We will continue our journey with a trekking in the nature that will take us, through pine forests and Mediterranean scrub, to rediscover the places of important experiments of an Italian Nobel Prize and to visit a very particular site: a centuries-old farm that was able to resume the production of local organic products thanks to the FAI protection and patronage where we’ll have our picnic tasting local ligurian food!

After a short break for the visit, we will continue until we’ll reach the top of Cape Mesco, the natural western gate of the Cinque Terre Park, a natural terrace with breathtaking views! We will begin the descent to the sea beyond the cape to reach the splendid and renowned Monterosso, where we can rest on the beach, admire the places that inspired another Italian Nobel Prize and, why not, take a dip in the wonderful 5 Terre sea. A day in the history and poetry of one UNESCO World Heritage site.
