A Levanto guided tour to make our guests’ stay even more special. We realized that most of our guests leave us without seeing the village’s historical area and knowing nothing about its fascinating history… we couldn’t let it go. So, from this season, we’ll be arranging special guided visits of Levanto, finishing with a typical aperitivo, for you to feel Italian 😉
Levanto guided tour
We’ll walk through Levanto’s historical alleys and pretty squares, visiting the ancient channel harbor of the Republic of Genoa, the Medieval Loggia, the St. Andrew typical church, discovering the village’s stunning history and lots of local traditions and curiosities.
For you to have a better idea of it, some time ago, I wrote this post on my own travel blog: Levanto Walking Tour. It might actually help you arrange a self-guided tour if you prefer to be on your own or can’t join us.
=> The tour costs 18€ per person, is planned at 11 a.m. on Sundays, and has to be booked at least one day in advance at the front desk or using our social networks or our online concierge on iMessage and WhatsApp (+39 338 1637272).
The meeting can be either at the front desk or in front of Bianchi, the historical confectionery at the corner between Via Guani and Via Dante. This confectionery represents a highlight of my childhood afternoons, and if you want to taste something before the tour, I recommend their stuffed donut or the «moretto,» my favorite!
The typical Italian aperitivo
To fully enjoy the local atmosphere, we’ll finish our walking tour with a typical Italian aperitivo, tasting yummy snacks, cocktails, and wine! We’ll be enjoying it either at Bar Cristal or La Compera, both in the Medieval area and offering a wide selection of local wines and food.
=> The tour includes a glass of Spritz or a glass of Cinque Terre white wine with some local snacks, but you could also get an alcoholic free drink if you prefer.
Well, don’t forget your camera or a smartphone to take pictures during the tour!
I recommend you wear comfortable shoes. It’s not a hard walk, but it will last more or less 90 minutes, with some steps and cobblestone alleys. I also suggest you get a water bottle before leaving and of course an umbrella on rainy days.
