With the arrival of the first nice weather and the first important holidays (Easter on April 20th, Liberation Day, the 25th of April; May Day on May 1st) the people have started to pour into Levanto. The first wave of tourists is always a great pleasure here, a promise of summer and of pleasant days to come, not to mention income to all of the local businesses, ours included. It’s also a wonderful time to hit the beach before the crowds and the beach umbrellas take over, even if the water is still rather chilly for swimming.
For those of you in our area in the coming days, keep in mind the following events that are being held: Saturday April 26, Lemon Festival in Bonassola; May 1st, the Italian Labor Day, check out the left-wing festivities in Montaretto; and on May 3 in the afternoon, join up with the free tour of Levanto sponsored by #InvasioniDigitale and the Oasi Hotel, which will be featuring visits into many cultural sites that usually remain closed. All events are free and open to the public.
