next hike

Sunday, August 30th:


The sun will be high, the temperature pleasantly warm, the sea should be calm: who’s up for returning to the emerald waters of the secluded craggy coast of Valletta (Moneglia) one year later?

Reaching Valletta is not straightforward, as it involves a T/E (easy/medium) hike, with 250 metres of elevation gain. It takes around 2 hours for the complete loop from the town of Moneglia and back.

You may read more about the trail on:

Should anyone fancy conquering a peak before going to Valletta, we might try to get to the cross of Monte Comunaglia (430mt): we never made it up there, we would probably need one extra hour for the bonus hike.


How to get to Moneglia, and how to come back alive:

Let’s meet twenty minutes past noon, at the entrance of Moneglia train station.

If you travel eastwards, we recommend:

Regionale 24553

11:20 Genova Brignole 12:24 Moneglia

If you travel westwards:

Regionale 24490

11:10 La Spezia Centrale 11:57 Moneglia

From Milano there should be the 8:28 “treno del mare” from Lambrate.


PS: If anyone’s doing the Portofino Trail of the Tubes on Saturday afternoon (see ), let me know and we might meetup in Camogli to go to S.Rocco (the starting point of the hike)
