The road surface has several irregularities because of the particular morphology of the territory and the frequency of landslides, which often cause the sudden closure of some roads. For this reason, we advise you to ask someone about the condition of the roads before starting this route.

Another itinerary starts from Alassio and takes you into the inland of the Ligurian Ponente, on a path between the hills and the sea. From Alassio you can reach the Santuario della Madonna della Guardia taking the Via Aurelia in the direction of Laigueglia and Andora. You should arrive at the foot of Cervo. From there follow the directions for Chiappa and Villa Faraldi and admire the beautiful view. Then the road goes down again in the Via Aurelia, where you can reach Diano Marina in a short time.

Once you pass the port of Diano, the itinerary continues in the first road on the right side, that rises to the Ligurian Alps towards Moltedo and Diano Arentino, before joining the provincial road no. 82. The curves increase and you begin to climb between the traditional Ligurian terraces overlooking the sea. In Chiusanico turn right to turn into the provincial road no. 29 and then overcome the bends of Colle San Bartolomeo; after a short stretch on the SS28 you turn once again to the right following the indications for Borghetto d'Arroscia and entering the wonderful Alta Valle of stream Arroscia.
