DISPLAY FULL DESCRIPTION
It will give you a chance to hike in amazing mountain sceneries while never losing sight of the blue Mediterranean Sea.

The region has an incredible variety of landscapes including a UNESCO Geopark and two National Parks in addition to dozens of protected areas. The western part of the Liguria region together with the French Riviera and Monaco, has submitted nomination proposals in 2019 to be considered for inclusion in UNESCO's World Heritage List and the Ligurian Alps are part of the reason! Not only the seaside is beautiful but there are amazing hikes to do in the Alps nearby. On a Day Hike in the Ligurian Alps, you can choose to walk through alpine highlands or on the edge of white cliffs, never losing sight of the sea, or simply walking through olive trees, breathing in the fragrance of the Mediterranean aromatic plants. Liguria is also known for its tasty food, its beautiful beaches, its historical places and its typical villages located directly by the sea or perched on the top of the hills.Most places can be reached in less than an hour's drive from the international airport of Cristoforo Colombo in Genova or a two hour's drive from the intercontinental airport of Malpensa in Milan.

Genova, the capital city of Liguria, is the homeland of Cristoforo Columbus and Niccolò Paganini. There are many reasons why this city is worth a visit: it is one of the biggest and well-preserved medieval cities in the world, its marvelous renaissance palaces are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Moreover, Genoa is worldwide known for its food specialties such as pesto and focaccia.
