Travel Blogs from Levanto
We arrived in Levanto, Italy early afternoon after having driven through some amazing countryside and coastline.
The tollway consisting of mountainous high bridges joining equally impressive large tunnels driving right through the centre of the mountains. It feels like you are driving in the clouds.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Nazionale Levanto
Bright large spotless room,very quite, right in centre of town, 10 minute walk to train for visiting the Cinque Terra villages, only thing was no wi-fi in rooms and had to use lobby. Other people can be a distraction.
Good breakfast, helpful staff.
