Sestri Levante is a good starting point for excursions to the famous Cinque Terre, Portovenere and Portofino, but is also close to Genoa (30 min highway). You can visit all these also by train, tha station is just 250 mt from the apartment.
Sestri is a peninsula with two beautiful bays. One of the two is called the Bay of Silence.
The church of the Capuchin Friars dominates the tow and from the square of the church you can see the two bays.
On the opposite side of the Capuchins stands the bell tower of the magnificent church of St. Nicholas.
The second bay is called the Bay of Fables, in honor of Hans Christian Andersen who used to vist Sestri and wrote fables and stories here.
At the end of May is held a children's festival in his honor.

Milan
First to Review

It is a very lively small town with shops, restaurants, beaches and a great place to have “aperitivi” and shopping.
In Sestri Levante there is the train station with direct trains to Genoa, Milan, Rome and to the Cinque Terre (special line that stops is all Cinque Terre villages), to Santa Margherita (Portofino) and Camogli
During summer months there are regular boat trips to Cinque Terre, Lerici, Porto Venere and Portofino.
Great beach in Baia del Silenzio but it gets very crowded during the high season...
