The new Second edition of this very popular guide was revised just before press date, when the author retraced many of the walks. Free GPS tracks are now downloadable for all the walks.This is a walking guide: while 'Landscapes' guides normally feature car touring and picnicking sections, the Riviera di Levante does not lend itself to touring by car. The towns and villages are so tightly packed that parking is a major problem - especially in the Cinque Terre. And since most of the trails are linear, the walks require access by public transport in any case. Visitors out for a stroll can use Sunflower's detailed maps to find the best spots for picnicking in a gorgeous setting.The book covers the whole Riviera di Levante, from the Magra River and La Spezia in the south, via the Cinque Terre and Portofino Peninsula, to Genoa in the north. Most of the walks are by the coast, since that's where almost all visitors want to holiday, but there are a few hikes in the isolated interior.
