Levanto has a long sandy beach, an interesting old center, many delightful painted villas, a bustling Wednesday market, and good restaurants and shops. Enjoying a partcularly mild climate, from here it's easy to visit the fascinating ports of the Cinque Terre, either by train, by sea or hiking.
Levanto is a very good surfing spot and during the right days there are surfers coming from all Europe.

beautiful night shot, with a goog exposure. The croping is good and the foreground, with those boats, is attracting. A nice composition, well done !

Nicely seen and taken, Gae. The night lights are well captured, not too contrasty between light and dark. I like the perspective of the shore, the receding covered boats and the very well lit, almost daylight like, area beneath the street. The people on the beach add to the feel of moving into the shot with their slight motion blur. I understand and agree with the crop here, capturing all the boats in this group. But another nice one would be to crop it to have the shore meet the left lower corner. It would work well with both sides like that and create a broader feel for the photo. But then you'd lose the boats and cut off at a strange point. So it probably does work better like this. Nicely done.

Seems like people here love their boats so much, they put pyjamas on them to sleep :-D
Beautiful night shot and good exposure, there are details even in dark zones (the trees).
I hope you enjoyed your stay as much as I did – but who wouldn't in such a place ?

Superb. The contrast between the orange lighting and the white light coming from under the arches. The detail is good of the trees, the classical 'macchia Mediterrana' of the pineta.
However the couple walking on the beach don't do it for me, as they are only movement in the picture, ofr me the stillness is disturbed. Still a very good picture with good composition.
