The Savona area is crossed by a dense network of paths that exceeds 300 km. An opportunity to experience a territory known above all for its coasts, in a different way: the wide breathtaking views accompany us to the discovery of ancient villages and castles, age-old beech-woods, caves and ponds, culture and traditions. The slow progress of the hiker's steps is the ideal way to discover the landscapes and hidden corners of the Province of Savona.
