Levanzo is the smallest island of the Egadi. It is our favourite: no cars - just sun, the changing blue of the Med and a breathtaking scenery. The only village on the island is Cala Dogana which is a picturesque place with a North African touch. Even though Levanzo is small, the walk around the village and the coast might take between 3 and 4 hours.
Levanzo's main attraction is the prehistoric cave Grotta del Genovese which can be accessed only on foot or by SUV with a guide, or by boat. The grotto contains wall paintings which are 15,000 years old and could be compared with the famous graffity paintings of Altamira in Spain.
One thing needs to be said: we have found only one shop, a bakery, a couple of bars, two restaurants and two hotels on Levanzo, so do book well in advance if you are planning to stay overnight.
