With its 6 sq. km., Levanzo is the smallest and the less inhabited island of the archipelago. A village made by few inhabitants and surrounded by high and indented coast-lines opening on to a very untroubled sea. The appearance of the island is rather wild, done by loops, grottos and relieves.
Its major boasting is the Grotto of Genovese: on its walls has been found important superior Palaeolithic graffitos representing men, animals hunting and fishing scenes. They also are one of the most ancient testimonies of tuna-fishing in Sicily.
Levanzo has a high coast with a few coves, like the suggestive pebble beach of the Faraglione and the Cala Minnula. The tiny inhabited centre which rose around Cala Dogana is reminiscent of the Greek islands with small white houses with turquoise window and door frames, one after the other. Isolated pathways go inland, offering pleasant walks in unusual and delimited rural surroundings.
