Places to Stop and Enjoy Local Products

Along the route, you will find a variety of options for accommodation and meals, as well as the opportunity to purchase local products.

For convenience, let’s start from Levanto, which offers a multitude of opportunities whether it serves as the traveler’s starting point or endpoint of the journey. For information and inquiries, you can contact the IAT Office located in Piazza Cavour under the arcade. Before embarking on your journey, don’t forget to taste Levanto’s sweets and focaccia, and during the beautiful season, enjoy some artisanal gelato. You can also explore the pesto workshop and wine shops showcasing Ligurian Riviera and Cinque Terre wines.

Remember to bring an ample supply of water with you before starting your trip, even though there are springs or public fountains along some parts of the route.
In Montale and its immediate surroundings, you can carefully evaluate options for overnight stays in terms of cost and quality.

Bardellone offers two agritourism facilities located on the side of Val di Vara, still within the municipality of Levanto, with overnight options available. You can purchase artisanal cheeses that reflect a centuries-old and well-established tradition.

Cassana also provides opportunities for dinner and overnight stays in the agritourism establishments, one of which is located in the Ginepro area, along the provincial road to Pignone.

Borghetto di Vara and Brugnato offer a wide range of affordable options. It’s always recommended to book in advance, as this is a common practice for all the establishments you’ll encounter along the way, up to Zignago, Zeri, and Pontremoli.

By purchasing Val di Vara Card at the information point in the Shopinn shopping center in Brugnato or at the other designated points of sale mentioned on the website you can enjoy discounts at numerous establishments along the route, from Bardellone to the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, both for dining and for accommodation, as well as for purchasing typical products.
