Hiking the Punta Manara was one of my favorite things to do while visiting the Liguaria region. The hike was spectacular and provided some amazing views! It was a little bit steep, so keep that in mind. The trail leads to another trail if I...More

easy to follow route from the town of Sestri Levante to the local headland. Fair bit of climbing to start and end the walk but otherwise easy going

A must do when visiting sestri levante. This steep but easy walk will give some great views over the bay of silence.

The walk to Punta Manara took us about 45 minutes each way, with time for taking in the view and having some water. The path is clearly marked, is a bit of a scramble at times and has some steep bits but it’s fairly manageable...More

Can be done as an "out and back" or continue on to the next beach town. Well marked. Even on a holiday was not over crowded.

This is an easy hike, although it has some steep parts involved. The path is clearly marked and there are enough people, so you can't get lost. The vistas are the most rewarding part! Every corner you turn there is another panorama, always breathtaking! Bring...More

This was a very visually rewarding short hike from the heart of the pedestrian area of town. We had our 30-lb. 2-year-old in a carrier and fared well. It is too steep and rocky for such a little one to climb on their own. Wear...More
