All boast excellent value for money and are ideal for safely taking a dip and enjoying water sports.

The Diano Bike Park attracts fans of enduro, freeriding and other disciplines from all over Europe. The Park unfurls at low altitudes with trails directly along the first hillside, offering exceptional views of the Golfo Dianese and the Golfo Andora. On a clear day, you can even make out the cape of Finale Ligure.
Trekking, trail running, urban walking, freeriding, cross-country ... Dianese Outdoor is a paradise for lovers of open-air sports. Steep slopes are perfect for mountain bikers, with nature trails to jog along or to take long walks through the Mediterranean scrubland.

Dotted with incredible beaches and characteristic coves, this cycle path is a true beauty to see, as a picturesque place to cycle or stroll along surrounded by lush vegetation.
The ancient villages are a must-visit for anyone staying in Liguria. These small hamlets perched on the ridges of the hills are rich in history, culture and traditions, where life flows slowly dictated by the rhythms of nature.
