Another ideal place to experience some
Moving northern, other Cittaslow can be found in the Cinque Terre National Park areas. Levanto, for example, is another medieval little city close to a tiny and delicious beach and with dozens of hiking trails nested among lemon trees, olive trees, vineyards and pine woods available on the hills just behind the coast. While travelling to Liguriait is important to know that anchovies are Levanto's fishy specialty, together with any other sort of seafood. Green beans and pesto are also very common in the Liguria region. The best pasta to mix pesto with is trofie, a spiral pasta made without eggs, while another typical pasta from Liguria is pansotti, that is ravioli with cheese and herbs, mixed with walnut sauce. Another specialty is "gattafin, a fried pastry purse stuffed with a savory mix of wild herbs, onions, egg and pecorino cheese. It's delicious on its own, but with a ragu sauce of wild boar, it's heaven on a plate". If you travel through Liguria, don't forget to sip some drops of limoncino, the northern version of the more famous Sicilian limoncello. All delicacies are available in the region, and this is what makes Levanto a good member for the Cittaslow club.
