Short description of Itinerary

Short and very scenic route. It crosses the four hamlets of Borgio Verezzi (Crosa, Poggio, Roccaro and Piazza) offering changing scenery from the holm-oak woods to the typical shrubs of the Mediterranean maquis until you reach the spectacular panoramic viewpoint on the cliff overlooking the sea, which allows you to look west to the island Gallinara and east to Genoa and beyond. Definitely an itinerary not to be missed if you love breathtaking views. A visit to the Old Quarry where the Pietra di Verezzi stone was extracted and to the Church of San Martino where you can rest in front of a glass of wine while enjoying the view is also a must.
