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 7 years ago. I went to a University in Florence where I graduated with a degree in Italian Language and I now live in the colorful seaside village of La Spezia. I have been biking on this path hundreds of 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.

The short: book this tour! It is truly just a perfect day out and about cinque terra :-)!!! Caroline is a wonderful hostess - the best kind of person to be on an outing with: you can relax and be yourself as you ride along the paths and take in views that you’d never discover on your own! It was just a perfect day and I can’t recommend this experience enough! Caroline even catered to my dietary preferences for our stop by the seaside for some lovely local food that I’d never have found myself. I’d give this experience more stars if air bnb would allow it. :-)

Expérience au top, c’est très agréable de se faire guider dans des petits coins d’Italie que nous n’aurions pu découvrir sans Caroline! Une petite dose de sport et un petit verre de vin à mi parcours! Tous les ingrédients pour une expérience réussie!!

Caroline was a good guide and this experience is best to be taken at the beginning of a trip to understand the layout of area. She was knowledgeable about the history of the tunnels and certain stops along the way. Thank you Caroline!

Easily one of the best & most personal excursions our family (my husband, me, & our 14 year old boys) has taken. Caroline is incredibly sweet and disarming. You immediately feel like you’ve known her forever. The Tour itself is a lovely way to find out about the hidden gems of the area. Caroline also gave us great tips about the area & recommendations for things to to and places to eat. Highly recommend!!

Ce tour en vélo sur les bords de mer était vraiment au delà de nos attentes. Caroline nous a fait découvrir de beaux endroits secrets et magiques au coucher du soleil tout en faisant du sport. De plus, elle nous a offert une collation avec des produits locaux et nous a expliqué des points d'histoire. Caroline est une personne agréable, nous avons bien échangé lors des pauses ou quand nous marchions. Nous la recommandons !

I went on a seaside bike tour with Caroline yesterday and I really enjoyed the experience. Carolie met me at the trains station in Levanto, we took the bikes from the nearby bike shop and cycled along the sea, through a very cool bicycle tunnel which used to be a train tunnel. We took small breaks at very picturesque locations, had a light snack kindly prepared by Caroline, switched from cycling to walking for a bit to enjoy the views. I had such a great day and would definitely want to do it again and would recommend this experience if you are visiting the beautiful Cinque Terre or the nearby areas. Thank you very much Caroline!!
