Levanzo has an area of 5.82 square kilometres (2.25 sq mi). The highest point is Pizzo Monaco with a height of 278 metres (912 feet). The island has about 450 inhabitants, who are concentrated around a tiny port, that gives little shelter from storms.
The ancient name of the island was "Phorbantia" which is a sort of plants growing there.
Levanzo is famous for the "Grotta del Genovese" with Neolithic cave paintings and Palaeolithic graffitoes.
