Levanzo is the smallest of the Egadi Islands and is located about 9 miles west of Trapani.
It has a village made up of few inhabitants and is surrounded by high and indented coasts with limpid sea.
The territory is about 6 square kilometers; it has a lot of hills dominated by the "Pizzo del Monaco".
The island is crossed by a single road that runs from south to north.
The northern part of the island is a succession of beautiful rocky and steep bays.
Between Levanzo and the Sicilian coast you can see the islets of Maraone and Formica.
The greatest pride of Levanzo is the Grotta del Genovese: in its walls important graffiti of the upper Paleolithic were found; it is one of the oldest evidence of human presence in Sicily.
The rock figures of men and animals refer to the Mesolithic and the engravings would be the oldest in Europe, along with those of an equivalent cave in France.
In Levanzo, where tranquility and silence dominate, it is advisable to move on foot or by bicycle or by boat.
The island is solitary and is an oasis of peace for those who love peace.
