Places of interest in Levanto
It is difficult to answer the questions: “Where should I go in Levanto, what is there to see?” There are not many places of interest here, but on the other hand there are many centuries-old buildings that deserve a visit. We suggest you visit the fortress, the palaces, the religious buildings (for example the monastery of the order of the Poor Clares and the ancient church of Santa Maria della Costa). We also recommend a stroll along via Roma in Levanto which leads from the station to the waterfront. And you can go to the beach or to the neighboring village along the walking trails: it is mainly for this reason that tourists come to Levanto!
