This quaint & picturesque city is the last stop on the train line that starts in Savona, running through Genoa and all the other spots mentioned above.
The train ride is a little over an hour away from Genoa and will cost about 10 euros, but it is beyond worth it. The train station is located in the middle of the city, but a 10 minute walk from there puts you seaside, with a plethora of beaches facing the coastline and all the cities you passed on your train ride. But walk another 10 minutes and you’ll come across the real gem of Sestri Levante known as ’Baia del Silenzio’ or ‘Silent Bay’.
The name is no joke, this bay is as quiet as it is stunning, featuring a calm beach with calmer waters and views you’ll never forget. If you venture out of the bay, one street over you’ll come across the pedestrian zone on ‘Via XXV Aprile’, a long, winding street full of shops, restaurants, multiple gelaterias, cafes and one amazing spot where you can find the best focaccia Sestri Levante has to offer.
Be sure to stop into ‘Panificio Luca 3’ for your lunch on the beach, with all the different types of pizza and focaccia they have, you might not be able to carry your all of your lunch back to the beach!
