E-BIKE THROUGH THE MOUNTAIN PATHS OF PORTOFINO
FROM SANTA MARGHERITA LIGURE WE CYCLE TO RUTA DI CAMOGLI FOLLOWING THE PANORAMIC AURELIA ROAD.
The Via Aurelia dates back to Roman times and links the villages of the Tigullian Golf with the ones of the Paradise Golf. Lush vegetation, pastel colored houses and the deep blue Ligurian Sea accompany us along the way.
We make a short stop in San Lorenzo della Costa, to admire the famous Saint Andrew’s triptych painted in Bruges 1499, a real hidden treasure! We continue to the little village of San Rocco di Camogli perched up on the hills, 300 meters above sea level.
In Portofino we climb up to the Church of St George and take in the view of the Two Gulfs before some free time in the famous ‘Piazzetta’.
San Rocco is the ideal place for a snack of local specialties as we stop and take in breathtaking views of the coast. Our bike ride continues as we enter the Park of Portofno and ride up to Portofno Vetta, the highest point of the promontory.
Cycling on off roads paths gives us the chance to admire the lush vegetation of this protected area and reach the Mulino del Gassetta, one of the few ancient watermills remaining in the area. From here, following a scenic rural path we reach the elegant resort of Portofno.
On the way back we cycle along the costal road to Santa Margherita Ligure, where our excursion ends.
