We will stop at the Pian delle Bosse Refuge, one of the most beautiful and characteristic Refuges in Liguria!

Day 3: This is Mount Carmo day! The unmissable Monte del Ponente, one of the most beautiful and well-known, for its 1389 m height (not bad for a Ligurian sea view!), For the panorama it offers and for the nature it hosts, both in botanical and fauna terms. From the top of Mount Carmo, which can be reached via the ridge path, we will then link up with the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, following wide and never too inaccessible paths. You will pass through wonderful birch and beech forests with a truly fairytale atmosphere. Climb to the top of Bric dell’Agnellino and then continue, via a pleasant dirt road surrounded by beech wood (AV), to the Central Fort of Melogno.
