Discovering Baie del Levante: Framura and Bonassola
We leave Levanto taking minor roads in the direction of Genova. The first 6km climb, and the slower pace helps us to fully enjoy the wonderful views.
On reaching the top we stop briefly to view the red marble quarries, a stone typical of this area. We continue with the sea to our left and stop at the village of Costa, the highest of the villages that make up Framura.
[a typical Ligurian group of five separate hamlets lying between the mountains and the sea.] here we visit the church of St Martin which dates from the 12th century and the Guards Tower from the Carolingian Period (10th Century) built on a sort of sea terrace. Continuing around Mount Serro we descend to Setta and Anzo, other tiny villages with their respective towers, down to the little port of Framura.
We return to the cycle path taking the “lift above the seas“, rising slowly and with a cool breeze we pass Bonassola, where we visit the parish church of Saint Catherine, before returning to Levanto. And all this without missing a typical Ligurian meal of a glass of white wine and a strip of delicious focaccia.
NB: In case of adverse weather conditions the excursion will be canceled and the amounts paid will be refunded.
