Short description of Itinerary

It is a very panoramic loop route with some difference in height, especially in the first part where a demanding mule track among the olive trees climbs for about 1 km on the ridge, giving an enchanting view of the tourist harbour of Finale Ligure. Once you reach the top of the Manie Plateau, the path turns from stony to compact and flat and enters the typical Mediterranean scrub among arbutus, holly and holm oak woods. From the top of the cliff you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Finale area from Varigotti to Finale Ligure up to Gallinara. The descent among olive trees and narrow stairs is pleasant and crosses the houses of the village of "Chien" reaching in a few minutes the beach of Varigotti.



La "Ciappa" or Beach Rock

Along the coast of Varigotti and along the entire length of the beach between Caprazzoppa and Rio Botassano is clearly visible near the shoreline, when the sea is clear, a rocky platform.....
