What you'll do

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.

Where you'll be

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.

Caroline did an excellent job, she was very knowledgeable and passionate about Italy. She is nice and easy to talk to, she even brought wine and a local snack that we could try. The experience was beautiful, we went to a lot of interesting spots, the scenery is lovely. I highly recommend this experience!

Caroline was a sweet host. She went at our pace, even though we weren't going exactly according to her schedule (we loved the little-known beach she took us to!). Her snack was delicious, too! She was patient and informative, and even directed to an amazing place for lunch afterwards an award-winning pizza restaurant (they are touted as the best pizza in Italt!). She also gave us great recommendations for other things we were interested in doing. We highly recommend taking her tour. Note: even though the biking is on flat ground, the walks are not. It is still worth every second!

We did the morning bike ride tour and it was a lot of fun. Caroline was a fantastic guide. She is very personable and knowledgeable about the area. She gave us a little history about the tunnels and area in which we went through. She allowed us to stop whenever we wanted for pictures. She gave us tips on which trails to hike and which direction to take for the best views, along with a great recommendation for lunch. Thank you for the great morning! Grazie!!

Caroline is so kind and took her time with us retirees (I haven't biked in ages). The trip is very flat with no cars except for a few minutes out of Levanto headed up to the trail. The views were glorious and we discovered all sorts of spots we'd love to revisit one day. The hiking was easy for relatively fit people. Caroline was from Illinois like us so she was super easy to understand. She shared her love of this place and how she came to live here. She even gave us some European travel ideas and food suggestions. The tunnels feel like air conditioning on a hot summer day! We had a great time and wish we could've done her farm experience as well.
