The new Framura path on the sea allows enjoying a beautiful view of the Cinque Terre sea

In the last years the village of Framura, featuring a small, beautiful cove with the most crystalline water, carefully worked to the creation of a pleasant path to walk or cycle along the sea, from the area of Torsei next to the railway station all the way to the beach called La Vallà. The total path lenght is of about 800 hundred meters, in the shade of maritime pines and surrounded by aloe plants and the smell of the Mediterranean maquis.

This path joins the bike trail from Levanto to Bonassola to create a sort of extension of the Cinque Terre charm and give more chances to enjoy a beautiful stretch of the Ligurian coast on bike and foot.

The Levanto-Framura tunnel, once the target of two WWII missions, is today a beautiful cycling path

Coming from La Spezia, Framura is located after the Cinque Terre and the town of Levanto and Bonassola. Together with these two and Moneglia, Framura is maybe less popular among tourists but very appreciated for the typical Ligurian atmosphere and the beautiful beaches, as well as for the long history of its buildings. It can be reached sitting in the very same railway trains from La Spezia through the Cinque Terre, enjoying the beautiful view offered by the journey.

In WWII, the Framura’s railway section was the target of two American 15-men missions called Operations Ginny I and II, which attempted to blow up a railway tunnel between Framura and Bonassola. Both missions failed but the second mission’s soldiers were executed and buried in a mass grave by the German Army.
