We will meet at the train station in Levanto, a seaside town 5 minutes from the Cinque Terre by train, only one stop from Monterosso. We will pick up our bike rentals just 5 minutes from the station. The path is entirely flat & winds through former train tunnels from the 1800s that run along the Ligurian Sea. It connects the charming seaside towns of Levanto, Bonassola & Framura. The ride is completely smooth, flat and paved & stretches about 5 kilometers from Levanto to Framura. We will stop in Bonassola to walk to a panoramic viewpoint on a cliff (2.5 km total, includes stairs & paved road) & again in Framura to walk to a hidden beach (2km total) and then head back to Levanto. We will also have a special local snack along the way! 10km total biking. 4.5km total walking. The towns of Bonassola and Framura haven't been affected by tourism like the Cinque Terre have so it is quite special to visit such serene & charming seaside towns. Experience them as they always were, quiet oases on the sea, touched only by nature & enjoyed almost exclusively by the local people. The exhilaration of riding through old train tunnels, breathtaking sea views, the picturesque beaches & villages along the way all make for a very memorable experience. For the sunset evening tour we will enjoy incredible views of the sunset & have a glass of wine on a hidden beach at the peak hour of sunset.
I am an American girl from the Midwest but I followed my heart to Italy 5 years ago. I went to a University in Florence where I graduated with a degree in Italian Language and I now live in a colorful seaside village in the Cinque Terre. I have been biking on this path more than a dozen times so I know it like the back of my hand and can save guests so much time with pre-arranged bike rentals and the ease of following a local on a less traveled bike path. I have thorough knowledge to share of the cities we are biking through and their history as well.
I will bring along a delicious local treat for you to enjoy during the tour. Please let me know if you have any allergies to:…
Water: One bottle of still water per guest / Wine: One glass of white wine for guests to enjoy (ONLY on the evening sunset…
Bicycles: All bikes include a gear shift, basket, lock, and (optional) helmet.
The bike path itself is something known almost exclusively by locals. I will be giving you an exclusive tour off the beaten path on a seaside trail you would unlikely discover on your own. In Bonassola we will visit a panoramic viewpoint on a cliff & in Framura I will show you a beautiful hidden pathway that wraps around the coast & leads to a serene and picturesque hidden beach. This beach is so hidden that only the locals know how to find.
