New e-bikes in Levanto!
We tried the e-bikes in Levanto as soon as they arrived and we loved them!
Electric bicycles, also known as e-bikes or booster bikes, have an integrated small electric on-demand motor to assist the rider’s pedal-power.
The motor is activated by a handlebar-mounted throttle and you can pick the level of the assistance in between eco, tour, sport and turbo.
From now on, everybody can bike along our amazing, but steep riviera!
E-bikes in Levanto, the guided tours
Excursions are organized by ebikein that provides electric bikes, hardhats and an expert tour guide.
The starting point is at their headquarters in Via Garibaldi in Levanto and we recommend you get there five / ten minutes before your appointment for a short briefing on the pedal assistance system.
Levanto – Bonassola – Framura
A four hours tour leaving at 9.00 a.m. and leading you to discover impressive views, hidden hamlets on the hills, a picturesque landscape and the biking path built along the ancient railway road on the waterfront. The tour also includes an aperitif by the sea to taste some local products.
It costs 49€ and it’s really worthwhile.
Levanto – Soviore – Reggio – Vernazza
An incredibly beautiful four hours tour leaving at 4.00 p.m. The route offers a breathtaking view on Levanto valley first, on Monterosso seen from the peaceful Shrine of Soviore and then on Vernazza seen from its Shrine of Reggio. The Cinque Terre are beautiful, but seen from above are really special!
The tour can end in three different ways:
- with a wine tasting in the vineyards of Cheo: 70€ (only on Tuesday and Friday)
- with a cocktail on the main square (like being in a perfect postcard…): 55€
- with a seafood dinner on the main square, sitting under the colorful parasols of Gianni Franzi: 95€ (on request)
The train ride back to Levanto is included and we loved it!
Levanto valley and its hamlets
Levanto is surrounded by a shiny green valley hosting more than twenty medieval hamlets and some of them are really worth a visit. The tour lasts 2,5 hours and start at 5.00 p.m. Like the others, it includes a final “happy hour” moment.
It costs 39€.
