Self-guided Walking Tour from Piedmont to Liguria

From Vineyards to the sunny Riviera

The Riviera coast runs along northern Italy and to the world of the rich and beautiful – Monaco. Start in Langhe/Piedmont, which is also known as the gourmet region of Italy. The hiking tour will impress with a contrasting landscape: through romantic vineyards and along the Riviera coast of Liguria.
