Took a gentle walk up to Il Gigante and had a look back at beautiful Monterosso. Decided to keep walking uphill for an even better view...and kept walking in the direction of Levanto on the marked walk. It became clear that this walk was something quite special. It was a steep climb up to the top of the mountain (one hour) but the views were beyond spectacular. There is then a relatively gentle decent into Levanto (a further two hours) through beautiful forest trails with again spectacular views out to the sea. Levanto is not a bit resorty with a lot of beaches and lots and lots of sunbathers...the train back to Monterosso only takes 15 mins!! This was my favorite walk of all the treks between the five (six!!!) towns and I can't understand why this particular walk is not promoted more...and by the way it is free.
