The path from Levanto to Monterosso, checking out Podere Lovara and Punta Mesco
The Levanto Monterosso path is a beautiful path that offers some of the most beautiful views in the trekking in the Cinque Terre, passing through Podere Lovara, a recently restored abandoned farmhouse and Punta Mesco, with the ancient monastery of S. Antonio.
It is a stretch of the AVG5T path (ex n.1), a long path that crosses the Cinque Terre passing between the hills and the coast, and can be covered at one time or also in stages. The stage between Levanto and Monterosso is certainly one of the most spectacular, also because it offers a varied experience, made of hiking and discovering architectural beauties and life in the most authentic Cinque Terre. The walk takes about 2 and a half hours, less for more experienced hikers. The path is easy, even children can do it, but trekking shoes are always recommended. All seasons are good for this route, even in winter, but it is necessary to keep in mind that in summer it is better to avoid the hottest hours.
We recommend starting from Levanto, because from Monterosso the path is very steep at the beginning. From Levanto, we reach the waterfront on the left and look for a blue house, from there the walk to Monterosso starts with a nice climb between the last houses of Levanto and the scents of the Mediterranean scrub, which you can smell along the whole route.
Already from the first stretch, climbing the hills behind Levanto among olive trees and pine trees, the view is truly breathtaking.
From here, the Monterosso sea view is really beautiful.
