In Liguria there is not only the sea, there are also the mountains. This third itinerary reaches the French border and it is located right in the heart of the Ligurian Alps. The starting point is Sanremo in the direction of Bordighera and Ventimiglia. Follow the Ligurian coast for about twenty kilometers and then take the deviation for Dolceacqua, a nice medieval village with his bridge and the Castle of Doria’s family. Once you get in Dolceacqua, the itinerary rises in the Ligurian Alps and continues on the provincial road no. 54 until Isolabona and Pigna. It is a road full of curves. Then there is the provincial road no. 65 that allows you to reach the Colla di Langan and the fork of Colle della Melosa, from there the road rises and crosses the national border. In a few kilometers of dirt road, you reach the Colla di Sanson, from which you can admire a beautiful view of the whole area of Ligurian Ponente.  

Now the road begins to descend towards Triora, the village of witches in the province of Imperia. You will get in Triora through a path full of curves that all bikers will like. Once you cross Molini di Triora the itinerary goes to the left along the provincial road 17 towards the Passo della Teglia. Once you pass the fork with the provincial road no. 21, turn to right towards the sea to come back to Sanremo passing through Badalucco and Taggia.

The road surface has several irregularities because of the particular morphology of the territory and the frequency of landslides, which often cause the sudden closure of some roads. For this reason, we advise you to ask someone about the condition of the roads before starting this route.

 

Without moving from the Riviera Ligure of Levante, you can choose a route not as famous as the previous, but not for this less fascinating.

This itinerary starts from Brugnato. You can take the provincial road n. 566 of Val di Vara in the direction of Carrodano. In Ca’ di Vara you will find a fork from which you can reach Sesta Godano or Carrodano. Once you are in Carrodano you should take a break to see Carrodano Sottano and Carrodano Soprano, two nice villages. Nearby there is also the Lago di Mattarana, an artificial basin immersed in the pine trees, from there you can see a wonderful view of the Alpi Apuane.

Continuing along the main road, you start climbing the Passo del Bracco through a thousand curling edges in an incredible landscaping setting that allows you to combine the fun of driving with the beauty of nature.

Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Riomaggiore and Manarola, the Cinque Terre, are very famous worldwide.

Cinque Terre are a perfect place to visit not only for walkers, but also for bikers. The itinerary that we suggest you starts from the motorway toll gate Sarzana, develops through the Golfo dei Poeti from Lerici to La Spezia and continues along the “Via delle Cinque Terre”, with terraced slopes, rocky bays and colorful villages dominating the sea.

The road surface is predominantly good and along the entire route you can come across accommodation facilities, ideal for motorcyclists looking for accommodation, a break or a farm holiday to stay overnight and relax in contact with nature.

 

The fourth itinerary starts from Alassio and takes you into the inland of the Ligurian Ponente, on a path between the hills and the sea.

From Alassio you can reach the Santuario della Madonna della Guardia taking the Via Aurelia in the direction of Laigueglia and Andora. You should arrive at the foot of Cervo. From there follow the directions for Chiappa and Villa Faraldi and admire the beautiful view. Then the road goes down again in the Via Aurelia, where you can reach Diano Marina in a short time. From Diano Marina you can go to Diano San Pietro. Once you pass the port of Diano, the itinerary continues in the first road on the right side, that rises to the Ligurian Alps towards Moltedo and Diano Arentino, before joining the provincial road no. 82. The curves increase and you begin to climb between the traditional Ligurian terraces overlooking the sea. In Chiusanico turn right to turn into the provincial road no. 29 and then overcome the bends of Colle San Bartolomeo; after a short stretch on the SS28 you turn once again to the right following the indications for Borghetto d'Arroscia and entering the wonderful Alta Valle of stream Arroscia.

Few miles after Borghetto, you have to turn left towards Leverone, Costa Bacelega and Onzo, where an amazing scenery opens up.

If you go on state road no. 453, in short time you can arrive at the Airport of Villanova d'Albenga. From here, you can descend again towards the sea along the provincial road no. 55.

Just over a kilometer away from Caso, you will find road signs for the Santuario della Madonna della Guardia. From here you will see a view over the sea that will allow you to relax and enjoy a truly unique landscape.
