The track
The tour starts from San Terenzo, not far from Lerici. Head towards the Rocchetta, an easy climb on paved road, about 4 kilometers. In about 20 minutes you reach the top. Throughout the climb on the paved road you can admire the view of the gulf. Here the first trail called Branzi begins and it leads to La Cava.
From here you go back along the Rocchetta trail to reach the trail called Guercio. Also from here you can enjoy an amazing landscape that the gulf offers. For the last part of the tour you go back to the Rocchetta in the direction of the trail La Serra, which ends directly in the village. La Serra rises on the heights above Lerici. The tour ends by descending towards San Terenzo, passing through the castle and finally going towards the downtown.

Here you can find the GPS tracks, and here where to sleep: Consorzio Residence Liguria.
