The Pedestrian/Bicycle trail of the ‘Parco Costiero del Ponente Ligure is one of the longest in the Mediterranean.
It measures 20km in length and can be used by both pedestrians and cyclists in both directions.
This trail initiated on the coastal route of the old single railway track between Ospedaletti and San Lorenzo al Mare, on the Genoa – Ventimiglia railway line, which was dismantled in 2001 and moved upstream. The railway line was then transformed into a bicycle trail.
The path is nice, easy and flat all the way through, hugs the typical Mediterranean coastline, and crosses picturesque villages that were once unique and inaccessible. From the trail itself beaches and cliffs are easily accessible and along the way one can find touristic villages, restaurants, bike rentals and overnight accommodation facilities.
