Daily hike from Uscio to Camogli between mountain and sea
February is the month in which on the Ligurian coast you begin to breathe spring air. Today with a nice group we have travelled the last stage of “Via del Sale lombarda”, Lombardian salt route, that from Pavia carried the merchants up and down to the Genoese coasts where the trades took place between the Mediterranean and the Po Valley.
Mount Priafaia is a small but extremely scenic summit in the Monte Beigua Natural Park in Liguria. From this peak during the clear winter days you can admire both the Alps and the sea in the same time thanks to the dry winter air. The name is difficult to pronounce for an Italian, who knows for a foreigner! The name means stone of the beeches: Pria means stone while Faia means beech in an ancient local dialect.
