Paths and Climbing Cinque Terre

Declared by the UNESCO as World Heritage in 1997, the 'Natural Park of Cinque Terre' is 30 minutes by train from Sestri Levante. There are 5 villages there: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola e Riomaggiore, all facing the sea. It's a territory in which sea and land become one in order to form a unique and enchanting area. The 18 km of rocky coast with a lot of bays, beaches and deep sea is towered by a mountain chain which goes alongside the coast.

From Sestri levante to Moneglia...

The most well-known paths go throughout the promontory of Punta Manara, which separates Sestri Levante from Riva Trigoso. Other facing-the-sea itineraries are those ones up to Punta Baffe, located on the eastern edge of the bay of Riva Trigoso and they lead to Moneglia or to Casarza Ligure, if one continues on the same way.

The particular position  of the Hotel, on the panoramic way towards Cinque Terre, is perfect to make enchanting excursions, even on foot, starting from the Hotel.

For those who love climbing, an enjoyable spit crosswise climbing itinerary, called 'Salto nel blu' (Leap in the blue) has been recently set on the cliff expense which links Sestri Levante to Moneglia.

Festivals

Every year the municipality of Sestri Levante organizes a lot of different entertainments. These are events related to sport (sailing regattas, soccer tournaments, fishing competitions), to culture (expositions, conventions), to folklore ('Barcarolata': a parade of decorated and illuminated boats in the Silenzio (Silence) Bay), to gastronomy (well represented by the so-called 'sagre': a typical festival in which you can taste all the characteristic dishes of our region).

The most prestigious festival is doubtless the 'Hans- Christian Andersen Price – Baia delle Favole (Bay of fables)' which is a very appreciated literary fable competition. It was founded in 1967 by Dr. David Bixio, Relais San Rocco's owner, and takes place every year in May.

 


Surroundings

When it comes either to culture and young people's night life, it's a city which has a real wide offer.
