Riccò del Golfo
Departure at sunset for the Alta Via Stage Race prologue: a fast, fun and panoramic single track ring, a mix of rather technical mule tracks and ancient "caruggi", the narrow and winding alleys, typical of Liguria, with their steep stairways. The route develops along the paths connecting the medieval villages located in the Riccò del Golfo valley: Quaratica, Valdipino and Ponzò, all examples of prestigious rural architecture, in the immediate hinterland of the amazing Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre.
