Description

Finale Ligure is best-known for its beautiful white sand beaches and historic town center. During the summer, tourists flock to Finale to relax on the shores of the Mediterranean, enjoy delicious Ligurian cuisine, and tour the historic sites. While Finale Ligure isn't well-known as a hiking destination, it does serve as an ultra-popular destination for both mountain bikers and rock climbers, and during certain times of year the town can be flooded with outdoor enthusiasts.

While of course the mountains are filled with trails, most of the trails are also filled with mountain bikers during the peak spring and fall riding seasons. While that shouldn't necessarily deter you, simply be aware of the potential for heavy trail traffic as you head out into the hills to go hiking.

If instead you'd rather avoid most of the mountain bikers and stay close to the town of Finale, tacking a quick hike onto your relaxing beach vacation, then these four short hikes are for you! While you may encounter other trail users, these hikes place a premium on solitude, sea views, and historic sites.
