The beauty of this package is in the freedom it offers: without a guide, you are free to decide the timing, pace, and stops of your journey. Travel freely, travel your way!

3/5 Medium

Moderate, between 35 and 85 kilometers per day with an elevation gain between 300 and 1000 meters.



The starting point is different from the ending point, with overnight stays in different hotels and daily stages.


Day 1: Genoa
Individual arrival in Genoa, for centuries a crossroads of Mediterranean peoples and one of the ancient Maritime Republics that rivaled with Venice. A trace of the ancient splendor is clearly visible in the marble palaces adorned with frescoes and in the elegant churches, like the cathedral of San Lorenzo. The other face of Genoa, the popular one, can be admired in the streets near the port, full of small typical shops. If you have time, don't miss a visit to the Sea Museum and the Aquarium.

Day 2: Genoa – Casella – Scoffera – Lumarzo – Carasco – Chiavari (65 km; +500 m)
Today is a day full of emotions: the train will take you to Casella, 410 meters above sea level. From here, it gradually climbs up to the Passo della Scoffera, and then descends along small roads lined with olive trees, touching small fractions like Lumarzo, the birthplace of Frank Sinatra's mother. You arrive at the sea in Chiavari, along the cool and shaded cycle path that runs along the Entella river.

Day 3: Chiavari – Val Graveglia – Varese Ligure (65 km; +800 m)
Challenging stage for the difference in height, but without steep climbs. From Chiavari, you go back into the hinterland, passing through the Basilica dei Fieschi, a Romanesque jewel, and then enter the tranquil Val Graveglia, where the manganese mine of Gambatesa is located, which you can visit if you wish. Arrival in Varese Ligure, a small village with bright colors and a characteristic circular shape, unique in Liguria.

Day 4: Varese Ligure – Levanto (48 km; +650 m)
After yesterday's efforts, today you descend among the green mountains of the hinterland, dotted with delightful villages that resemble the houses of a nativity scene, until you return to Levanto, an ideal place to have a nice swim in the sea, relax in one of the many characteristic places, or enjoy good ice cream.

Day 5: Levanto – Cinque Terre
A bike-free day dedicated to exploring the Cinque Terre, a unique territory in the world where the mountain full of terraces descends sharply to the sea, creating an unforgettable landscape. By sea with the ferry or, in case of bad weather, by land with the train, you will reach the five picturesque villages; we suggest doing part of the return journey on foot along the famous Path of Love.

Day 6: Levanto – Cinque Terre – La Spezia (41 km; +350 m)
From Levanto, you climb towards the Sanctuary of Soviore, a welcoming place with a beautiful panorama of Monterosso, then continue almost flat, along the spectacular road winding between the mountains, with a stunning view of coves and fishing villages, visited the day before. Breathtaking descent to La Spezia, a military port where there is an interesting Naval Museum. Possibility of reaching Portovenere by bus or bike, but on a busy road.

Day 7: La Spezia
After breakfast, end of services. Individual departure or extension of the stay.
