The eastern shores from Genova, known as “Levante (where the sun rises)” have some of the most famous sea locations of Italy: Portofino, Camogli, Cinque Terre (Five lands). The cozy Sestri Levante earns the title of “Sesta Terra” (Sixth land). Visit it off season and don’t miss Polpo Mario and El Pescador for gorgeous fish dinners, Luca bakeries for the best focaccia ever and Gelato naturale for an exquisite ice cream made of local milk from the Ligurian cow race “cabannina“.
