Genova - Sassello

The fifth stage begins with a fairly tortuous route through the small towns of the hinterland of Genova, until you meet the ridge of Alta Via dei Monti Liguri at Colla di Praglia. You continue at altitude, overcome Passo del Turchino and enter Geoparco del Beigua, with many exposed cyclable areas, limited portage and spectacular views of Golfo del Mar Ligure: this is the point where Alta Via, which runs at about 1.000 meters above sea level, gets closer to the coast. Once you reach Costa Giancardo, you leave Alta Via to go down to the charming village of Sassello, home of porcini mushrooms and amaretti.
