Hiking Cavi di Lavagna (Borgo) – Ruderi Chiesa di Sant’Anna (129 m.) – Sestri Levante

A due passi dall’ Hotel Doria nella prima via a destra , tra le case del Borgo, inizia il sentiero con una scalinata che prosegue poi sul tracciato dell’Antica Via Romana, (la via Emilia Scauri) di cui alcune tracce si possono ancora notare assieme ad arditi ponti in pietra a tutto sesto sulla salita verso S. Anna. Giunti alle rovine dell’antica chiesa dedicata a S. Anna si gode un bellissimo panorama. Lasciati i ruderi il sentiero scende su Sestri Levante attraverso la Valle del Fico.

Arrivati sull’Aurelia si può tornare a Cavi di Lavagna passando sotto le gallerie lungo la S.S. Aurelia.

Cavi di Lavagna (Borgo) – Santa Giulia di Centaura (254 m) –

Proseguendo sempre dritto per una cinquantina di metri sulla destra, tra le case, inizia il sentiero che sale verso Santa Giulia, il primo tratto tra strada asfaltata e sentieri tra case, uliveti e orti. Nel secondo tratto si percorre un antica mulattiera nel bosco di castagno dove qua e là si possono scorgere antiche cave di ardesia dalle quali venivano estratte pesanti lastre che le donne portavano sulla testa fino al porto di Lavagna, dove erano caricate sui leudi, antiche imbarcazioni a vela unica, per essere trasportate fino a Genova.

Once at the Church of Santa Giulia stop to look at the view, the centuries-old holm oak and Parish Church

Possibility to continue the path up to Monte Capenardo (693 m)

From the nearby Sestri Levante:

Punta Manara (tra Sestri Levante and Riva Trigoso)
On the promontory there is a network of well-marked trails that allows you to enjoy beautiful views and to make a pleasant and easy walks through forests of oaks, century-old specimens of cork, Mediterranean, cultivated terraces with care. The end of the headland walk is called the Telegraph (about 180 but above the sea). It was a lookout point and center of the optical telegraph: from here the view sweeps, on clear days, the archipelago Tuscan to France.
Access to the promontory are several:
from the center of Sestri Levante (Via XXV Aprile) is part of the Vico Button with the continuation of the Ascent Mandrella, following the path indicated with two red squares filled

San Bartolomeo della Ginestra and Riva, passing through the town houses Broom. Marking: the first two triangles red empty, until the fork of M. Castle, then two red dots filled

from the cemetery in Sestri Levante, going up to the Mandrella. Marking: none but well-trodden path

along Via Bands, at the height of Cantine Molinetti. Marking: two red dots filled

Punta Baffe (between Riva Trigoso until Moneglia or Casarza Ligure)
How to Punta Manara, Punta Baffe allows you to follow paths extremely scenic, rich in historical and natural interest.
In 2004, the cape has been devastated by a terrible fire: the signs are still visible but some patches of vegetation were saved and in some areas of the Mediterranean vegetation is recovering possession of the land.
The best known and most popular trail starts from the cemetery of Riva Trigoso (marked two red circles) and leads to the tower that was part of, like that of Punta Manara, the warning system to defend against pirate raids carried out since the sixteenth century.

Another route starts from the village Manierta, in front of the station Riva Trigoso (marked two red crosses; reaches the M. Comunaglia) and crosses, in the village of Colle Lake, the trail (two red circles) that connects the tower
The paths that start at Riva Ligure Casarza can reach, crossing portions of wood not covered by fire, or to continue to Moneglia, in which case you can choose between routes at different heights, a lower one that goes over town Vela Luka ( trail: a line and a red dot full, departing from the lookout tower), and a higher one that starts from the Monte Moneglia and passes by Mount Comunaglia (marked two red X's), already in the territory Moneglia.
The views range from the valley of Sestri, to those of Val Petronio, in the vast spaces of sea, covering the entire Gulf of Tigullio and on a clear day allows views even larger.
