Territory of Sestri Levante:

Extending towards the sea it is joined to the mainland by a canal and divides the "Baia delle Favole", (fairy-tale bay) the port whose namesake is dedicated to Han Christian Anderson who once stayed there for a short period.

Between the two bays and the canal is the historic centre while the more modern part is on and along the plain between the sea and the hinterland. The municipality territory is made up of the chief town and 32 villages and hamlets measuring in total 33,62km2.
