next hike

Genova Nervi

While waiting for the famous S.Fortunato festival in Camogli next Saturday 13th (fingers crossed that the weather will be with us!), is anyone up for a last-minute hike this Sunday?

After a stormy Saturday the sun should return shining over Liguria; given that yesterday was May 4th (be with you), let’s follow the Force and walk along the so called trail of the Alliance. Which probably has little to do with Star Wars and the Rebel Alliance, nevertheless it should allow us to have a memorable hike, with views over the Paradise Gulf and the Ligurian coast. More specifically, the idea is to explore the maze of trails above Genova Nervi and follow two routes (S.Maria Maddalena and Itinerario Storico Colombiano) that were trodden by merchants since the Middle Ages. The plan is to reach the chapel of S.Maddalena first, then head east to the peak of Bric Gianesi and south to Nervi, in order to complete the loop. Highlight of the hike are several churches (S.Rocco, S.Maddalena and other ones in S.Ilario) and the scenery: the path also goes by the name of “Balcony over Genova”, since it features plenty of lookout points.

Return will be, again, from Genova Nervi: we’ll probably be back there around 4pm or 5pm.
