The Levanto-Framura tunnel, once the target of two WWII mission, is today a beautiful cycling path
Only in this stretch were punched 51 shafts with a total of more than 28 km on 44 total Ligurian rail and 23 bridges were built, for a full length of nearly one kilometer. Because of the penalizing topographic conditions of the territory and manufacturing difficulties encountered, the line was across a single track; doubling was only concluded in early 1970.
The former railway was closed for many years, up until the latest years when the stretch Levanto – Bonassola – Framura has become a beautiful path reserved for cycling in the Cinque Terre and for pedestrians, characterized by short illuminated tunnels and open stretches on the sea, to meet beautiful spots to take a dip in the water. Lately also Monterosso in the Cinque Terre added up to the stretch: about 4 m. of straight asphalt road, the ideal path for a walk or a bicycle ride in sun and shade. The view of the sea from the privileged point of view is absolutely stunning.
