We recommend you to start in Levanto; a beautiful Ligurian village on the outskirts of the Cinque Terre. In Levanto there are numerous shops where you can rent bicycles. The cycle path starts in Vallesanta, at the western part of the beach promenade in Levanto. Here you enter the tunnels and you will pass by some lovely secluded beaches along the coast.
The route continues to Bonassola almost entirely through the cool tunnels. After appr. 2,5 km you will reach the small town of Bonassola with its fantastic beach. If you have time, stroll around the center of Bonassola with its colorful Ligurian houses. The final stretch, from Bonassola to Framura, is completely covered along the tunnels for about 2,5 km.
The cycle track ends at the harbor of Framura where you can park your bikes. Stairs and a small panoramic lift takes you down to the natural harbor, marina. Here you will find a small bar and it is also possible to take a dip in the crystal clear waters.
Return to Levanto the same way through the tunnels. Alternatively, you can take the train from Framura back to Levanto.
