3 days of hiking in Liguria, Tour on the seaside paths of the levante coast and Cinque Terre

From Sestri Levante to Monterosso, passing through colorful villages like Framura and stopping to admire the magnificent views of the Bay of Silence and Porto Pidocchio, with a day in the Cinque Terre national park

€ 469

Monterosso, Bonassola, Levanto, are stages of our trek and are names that evoke the wonderful Cinque Terre. We will certainly not miss an excursion, on Monday, entirely in the Cinque Terre Park, but on this trip we will try to explore the most unusual and less traveled paths of this incredible area where the sea and the mountain get together creating spectacular landscapes.

Our base will be a nice local B&B, and every day we will leave for an excursion, of an easy level, to enjoy the spring on the sea and meet beautiful places with evocative names: the Bay of Fables, the Bay of Silence, the village of Framura, Porto Pidocchio. 

The third day we can take the train to move to the Cinque Terre Park: we will walk between Bonassola, Levanto and Monterosso for a day after Easter out of the ordinary.

A small group of maximum 8 travelers, a passionate and attentive environmental excursion guide, our minibus that will assist us to take us on the paths, a way to travel like in a group of friends. The price includes transport, accompaniment, overnight stays, and all lunches, breakfasts and dinners.

Marco Ballatore

Il soprannome che gli hanno dato i nostri viaggiatori è il Sommo, e questo già dice molto della bravura, competenza, capacità di Marco come Guida Escursionistica Ambientale, ma chi ha camminato con lui sa che questo è unito ad una grande gentilezza e capacità di osservare e anticipare i bisogni di ognuno durante le escursioni e anche nei momenti di svago. Punto di riferimento per moltissimi dei nostri viaggiatori, che si affidano ai suoi consigli e partecipano ai suoi tour quasi ad occhi chiusi, è quasi impossibile trovargli un difetto (e abbiamo cercato a lungo). Marco è davvero preparatissimo e per noi di Giroola è la colonna portante dell'escursionismo, (senza di lui non avremmo iniziato a proporre trekking) ed una fonte di idee e proposte di viaggio inesauribile.

Dicono di lui i nostri viaggiatori:

  • Grazie a Marco per la sua attenzione continua nei nostri confronti, professionalità, gentilezza, una delle migliori persone e professionisti incontrati nel mio luogo peregrinare (Paolina, viaggiatrice in Valle Maira e Valle D'Aosta)
  • Marco B. che avevo già avuto occasione di conoscere in un altro viaggio con Giroola ha confermato la sua grande professionalità, guida attenta ad ogni particolare, fonte inesauribile d'informazioni sia tecniche che del territorio che conosce alla perfezione, gentile, educato e un approccio alle persone con una discrezione che raramente ho riscontrato (Simona, viaggiatrice in Valle Maira e in Liguria)
  • Marco è sempre gentile,  bravissimo e ci ha dato tanti consigli per affrontare al meglio la nostra escursione. E sa rivoluzionare i piani, adattare e modulare a seconda pure dei temporali! (Graziella, viaggiatrice in Valle Maira, Isola del Giglio, di Borgata in Borgata, Parchi Naturali e Lago Maggiore)

This tour is made of three day hikes of Easy Level (Tourist): relatively short itineraries, on wide paths and flat dirt roads or with slight slopes; lasting 3 hours of walking and with a positive vertical gain of maximum 450-550 meters.

So, it does not pose particular difficulties, but to enjoy the holiday and be at ease it is good to self-evaluate objectively your own conditions and abilities.

Classification of difficulty levels for trekking and hiking itineraries:

  • Easy (Tourist): relatively short itineraries, on wide paths and flat dirt roads or with slight slopes; lasting 2-3 hours of walking and with a positive vertical gain of maximum 200-250 meters.
  • Easy (Tourist): relatively short itineraries, on wide paths and flat dirt roads or with slight slopes; lasting 3-4 hours of walking and with a positive vertical gain of maximum 450-550 meters.
  • Intermediate (excursion): itineraries on paths of various kinds, sometimes with marked slopes; lasting 5-6 hours of walking and with a positive difference in height of maximum 900-1000 meters.
  • Challenging (Expert Hiking): itineraries that present some technical difficulties, such as rocky ground, slight snowy slopes, exposed sections and in some cases single rocky sections of easy climbing (I and II degree) that require the use of hands; a good rhythm is required and physical preparation must be adequate for a day of continuous walking in the mountains; lasting 8-9 hours of walking and with a positive difference in altitude from 1000 meters upwards.

All our tours are suitable for all ages (let's say from the age of 14 upwards) - the best thing if you have a doubt about the technical difficulties or the length of the route, you can call us and speak directly with your guide who can advise you in the best way based on your experience and your needs.

This tour consists of 3 days of hiking, based in Sestri Levante. We can therefore meet directly there, if it is convenient for you. In Sestri we can meet at 10 am on the first day.

In Sestri Levante, once the group is established, we will start the day as usual with a welcome breakfast, to get to know each other before leaving for our adventure.

The minibus will take travelers back to Turin to the same place of departure around 6.30pm on the last day. If you plan to go home by train from Torino, we advise you to choose departures starting from 7.00 pm.

The meeting point is in front of Torino Porta Nuova Station, in Piazza Carlo Felice Square under the arcades in front of the Decathlon store (click here for the Google Maps coordinates).

  • CLOTHING We recommend to dress in layers, using breathable garments, but without forgetting a fleece and a windproof and rainproof jacket. Regarding the trousers it is better to opt for a pair that would be not too heavy, able to dry quickly and especially with elastic parts to facilitate movement and be comfortable.
  • FOOTWEAR: Boots are good, better if not too heavy given the season, also low shoes as long as they are hiking shoes, suitable for walking on trails and dirt paths.
  • BACKPACK: Since we will start from a base each day, it is sufficient to have a backpack of 20-30 liters for day trips, with a cover in case of rain (you never know!). 
  • TREKKING STICKS:  ideal both uphill and downhill to reduce the effort of leg muscles and to reduce the load on the joints. 
  • DO NOT FORGET: A pair of sunglasses, sunscreen, a water bottle of at least half a liter as well as a cap and a band to protect the forehead and ears from the wind are essential.

In our hiking tours you will find solo travelers, couples, or pairs of friends, and in a small group of eight it’s easy to become friends straight away. This tour is perfect for those that traveling alone but don't want to be on their own for the whole trip. You're independent and you can choose if and when to share your free time with the group.

Our travelers are people who know how to travel, in fact they arrive independently to the place of the appointment, mainly from all over Italy (but not only) and who choose to take a trip with us to learn differently about places, people, flavors and traditions. We are proud to say that our travelers are the best part of our trips!

Solo travellers are always welcome in our tours, and if you feel like sharing a double of triple room with other members of the group we will send you an e-mail after your reservation and you will be able to tell us about your preferences (for example, if you are a girl and you would like to share a room with girls only etc). You will not pay any surcharge.

If you prefer, you can book a single room for a fee.

If there are no other solo travellers in your tour or if there is no opportunity to satisfy your preferences, your single room will be offered by us at no extra charge.

Before each trip we always ask our travelers about any allergies, intolerances or special food needs, and we prepare in advance with restaurants and hotels to make everyone's experience the best possible.

We also pay attention to the needs of vegetarians and vegans, ensuring that suitable alternatives are always provided. 

Adatto vegetariani e vegani

On our hiking trips though, we gladly accept small dogs, one for each trip, because outdoor activities and the appropriate choice of dog friendly hotels and restaurants allow us to welcome them without ruining the holiday for those who love them less than we do.

The participation of the dog implies:

  • getting a single room
  • a hotel fee for room cleaning
  • a cleaning fee for the minibus

To make sure you can take your dog with you on this trip, call us or write to us to make sure that there is still the possibility of transporting it on our minibus (you can contact Paola at 370 3506333, via email [email protected], or directly by chat here).

Booking Policy, from the General Terms and Condition for the Sale of Tour Packages:


Acceptance of reservations by Giroola Srl is subject to availability. Reservations will be considered final following confirmation by Giroola Srl,  even via e-mail or fax, to the client.

Indications relative to the tour package not contained in the contract documents, brochures or other forms of written communication, will be supplied in time by Giroola Srl prior to the initial starting date in compliance with its duties as envisaged by Legislative . decree n. 79/2011.


Upon booking, a registration fee and a deposit of 25% of the total amount is required. Full payment is due 30 days prior to departure. For reservations made within 30 days of departure, full payment is due upon booking. Lack of payment of the abovementioned sums on the dates established constitutes grounds for cancellation of reservations such as to determine, on the part of Giroola Srl, the right to terminate the contract.


The client renouncing the contract may be substituted by another person provided that:

a) Giroola Srl be given written notice at least 4 weekdays prior to the date of departure, together with the necessary personal data of the transferee;

b) The transferee be able to satisfy all the conditions for the fruition of the service ( ex article 10 of Legislative decree n.111/95) and in particular the requisites relative to passports, visas, health certificates;

c) The transferee refund Giroola Srl for all expenses incurred for the transfer of the contract for the sum specified before the transfer.

Moreover, the transferor and the transferee are both accountable for the payment in full of the tour package price as well as for the sum as per item (c) of the present article.

As far as certain types of services are concerned, third party suppliers have the right to refuse the substitution of the transferee, even if effected within the time limit specified as per item (a) of the present article. Giroola Srl will therefore not be held responsible for the eventual non-acceptance of the substitution on behalf of third parties. This non-acceptance shall be notified in good time by Giroola Srl to the parties involved before departure.


In the event of withdrawing from the tour package contract, the client is, in any case, liable for the payment of the tour package price. If withdrawal takes place for reasons beyond those envisaged in article 7 of the present General Terms, the client shall pay, in compliance with ex article 1373, paragraph III, Italian Civil Code, cancellation penalties as specified below:

  • 10% of the tour package price within 30 days prior to departure
  • 30% of the tour package price from 29 to 18 days prior to departure
  • 50% of the tour package price from 17 to 10 days prior to departure
  • 75% of the tour package price from 9 to 3 weekdays prior to departure
  • 100% of the tour package price beyond these terms.


The client may withdraw from the contract, without incurring any penalty, in the following circumstances:

  • a significant change of one or more elements of the contract which can be objectively considered as fundamental for the fruition of the tour package in its entirety and proposed by Giroola Srl.
  • after the conclusion of the contract itself but prior to departure and not accepted by the client.

In the abovementioned circumstances, the client is entitled to the following options:

  • the fruition of an alternative tour package, with no increase in price or with the restitution of the excess in price, if the second tour package costs less than the first;
  • the restitution of any sum corresponded as partial payment. Said restitution must be made within seven weekdays from receiving the request for reimbursement.

The client must communicate the decision (to accept the change or to withdraw) within two weekdays from receiving notice of the price increase or change. In the absence of specific notice within the said term, the proposal made by Giroola Srl will be considered accepted. The client who decides to withdraw from the contract before departure for circumstances beyond those listed above shall pay, after deducting the account paid as per article 4, the penalty indicated in article 6.


Variations to the tour, requested by the client, after the confirmation of booking, could involve processing expenses for Giroola Srl and at times penalties charged by suppliers. If so, the customer will be charged. Partial withdrawal of some of the travellers under the same contract and the resulting decrease in number of tour members is to be considered partial cancellation and is consequently regulated as stated in article 6.

As specified in our General Conditions of Sale of tourist packages, when you travel with Giroola you are covered by our Civil Liability Insurance. For all that could happen and that was due to our negligence or error, we have signed a policy (Reale Mutua Assicurazioni, nr.2007 / 03/2276452).

There are other insurance policies that we recommend and for which we have chosen to work with Allianz Global Assistance, whose Globy range seems to us to be the most suitable for our travelers:

  • TRAVEL CANCELLATION - Our 8-person trips are often full months before the date of travel, and even if our cancellation policy is actually much more flexible than expressed in our Booking Policy (our travelers can attest to this, we are very available to move the trip in case of unexpected even the last minute), where other facilities are involved (hotels, rentals, etc) some expenses are not really refundable, and therefore a good trip cancellation insurance becomes a valuable ally. 

We at Giroola are an agency of the Globy network of Allianz Global Assistance, and we can therefore provide you with all the information, make estimates and issue the policies directly with the booking.

For any information our Paola is at your disposal at the phone number +39 370 3506333, at the address [email protected] or in the chat directly on this page.
