Sanctuaries and Vineyards pedaling in the Cinque Terre
We load the bikes on the train in Levanto with destination Riomaggiore; after about 20 minutes we start pedaling.
The road starts immediately steep, we cross Riomaggiore passing in front of the church of San Giovanni Battista and take the provincial road; for a moment the islands of Palmaria and Tino appear in front of us.
We climb slow and we can fully appreciate the territory around us. We arrive in Volastra and we visit the Sanctuary. Now the road is flat, below us before Corniglia and then Vernazza, this is the most scenic part of the tour.
We make many stops for taking photos and to admire the vineyards that descend towards the sea with the typical rack trains that are used for the harvest. We are finally at the highest point, the Termine pass, here begins the descent. In a few minutes we are at the Sanctuary of Soviore above Monterosso, we visit the church and in the shade of holm oaks we taste a glass of local white wine with a bit of focaccia. A few minutes of fun descent and we are in Levanto.
