WANDERING IN LIGURIA
ON FOOT FROM MOUTH OF MAGRA TO PORTOFINO BETWEEN SEA, CULTURE AND TREKKING
The whole coast from Bocca di Magra (about 6 km from our house) to Portofino, can be defined as a real outdoor naturalistic laboratory. The tourist can organize his itinerary on foot proceeding from the beginning of the high coast, at the mouth of the river Magra, cross Monte Marcello, Lerici, the Cinque Terre and even head to San Fruttuoso, Portofino and … why not Genoa.
Along the numerous marked trails that run through it you can meet mixed forests, typically Mediterranean vegetation, continental type forests and a particular geology, evident in the cliffs overlooking the sea.
PORTOVENERE, THE PALMARIA ISLAND AND CINQUE TERRE
The emotion that gives the view of the hill that juts out over the sea, like a wonderful choreography by a romantic painter that has drawn a picture of rare intensity, is worth a visit to these “pearls” of Liguria. Houses and paths suspended between sky and earth, a unique natural spectacle that has remained uncontaminated and faithful to the seafaring tradition.
Trekking routes, such as the classic “Cinque Terre Traverse” that allows you to visit all the characteristic five villages that give the name to one of the most famous and beautiful areas of the Ligurian coast (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Coniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso) o the complete tour of the island of Palmaria winds along the typical paths that cross vine terraces, obtained from the work of man over the centuries.
In the summer period from Marina di Carrara are organized daily boat trips.
ALONG THE PATHS OF COSTA LIGURE, DISCOVERING THE NATURAL PARK OF PORTOFINO AND ITS ANCIENT VILLAGES OF STONE
Even here you breathe the same air of the Cinque Terre, nature is the host and speaks an ancient language. Self-guided nature itineraries are possible, illustrated by a series of explanatory signs on the ground, but, by contacting organizations on the territory, itineraries can be organized with a naturalistic guide. The panoramic paths lead to the most suggestive corners, such as the wonderful San Fruttuoso Abbey, from which you can continue on foot or by boat to Portofino and S. Margherita Ligure.
