Sestri Levante is a city in Liguria.

Get in[edit]

The closest airport to Sestri Levante is Cristoforo Colombo of Genova, far 60 kilometers. Take the Volabus shuttle to the train station of Genova Brignole; from here, continue with a regional (a 70 minute trip) or intercity train (a 31 minute trip) to Sestri Levante.

Get around[edit]

Within the Tigullio gulf you can visit also Lavagna, Chiavari, Zoagli, Rapallo, Santa Margherita and Portofino. Thirty km south you can visit the Cinqueterre, 5 small towns built on the rocks on the sea. The best way to reach there is by train from Sestri Levante.

The Galleria Rizzi houses a precious collection of paintings of the Genovese school(from the 15th to the 18th century). The Convento dei Cappuccini is in an extraordinary panoramic location, and that of San Nicolò in Isola is truly attractive. There are beautiful slate portals and marvelous villas and historic palazzos such as the Palazzo Negretto Cambiaso and the Palazzo Comunale, and the Villa Gualino and the Villa Balbi.
