Map of Liguria, showing Levanto and the Cinque Terre

Levanto is just north of the Cinque Terre, in Liguria, the Mediterranean coast of Italy (the Italian Riviera).

How to get to Levanto

The easiest way to get to the Cinque Terre is by train. A local service connects all the villages, including Levanto, and trains run frequently to the region from key cities such as Genoa and Pisa. An alternative is to go by car, but the roads in the region are very narrow and winding. The only town with a lot of parking is Levanto. A ferryboat service operates from the beginning of April to the end of October, stopping at each of the villages.

Villa Margherita Bed & Breakfast

Villa Margherita by the Sea is a restored classic Italian villa located in Levanto. Built in 1906, it was recently restored by the Campodonico family and is now a charming and well known B&B run by Federico Campodonico.
