Springtime sunsets, Levanto style

Levanto, with it's long stretch of beach, is the town just next to Monterosso.  Though not part of the Cinque Terre, it's a beautiful little town with a great surf-culture feel and some wonderful food.  And people.  Levanto was one of the most active villages in helping us out after the flood.

Fishermen on the pier.

Aperitivo at one of my favorite bars.  Gambrinus, in the center of town, has an AMAZING beer selection, and an owner who knows his stuff.  Also, you can't beat a bowl of raw, local, fresh peas as a snack with some belgian beers.  I never had raw peas before - they're sweet, crunchy, and a wonderful touch.

Beautiful sunsets aren't hard to find on the Riviera, wherever you are gazing from.
