The second stage takes you to the most stunning port cities and fishing villages of Western Italy
Distance 371.1 km
This tour leads you alongside the picturesque coastline of Liguria. Via Aurelia winds along the Ligurian Riviera and offers spectacular views of the original and unspoiled Italian coast. Passing by small towns such as Cipressa, Costarainera and Noli with their natural beauty you’ll get a sense of La Dolce Vita and of what living on the coast feels like. Quite different are the bigger cities of Genoa and Sanremo with their busy streets and Mediterranean flair. This is where natives gather and make the streets come alive with their casual chatter and vitality.
Don't miss the chance to explore the small town of Noli, a traditional and authentic fishing village at the Ligurian Riviera. Fortunately it’s still quite unknown and more of a insider tip, so you won’t find huge crowds of tourists here.
