Bishops' Road

Status Open

Excursions in Liguria are renowned for their stunning views and picturesque locations and the trail that connects Spotorno to Noli is no different: it unravels through rolling hills overlooking the sea and breathtaking views. Actually, until 1817, the year the Via Aurelia was built, this was not just any trail but the main road that connected these two beautiful locations. Departure is at the coach parking between Spotorno and Noli and the trail begins with a fairly steep stretch of paved road that runs along Casa al Mare dell'Incoronata's park, former Villa Ada, which dates back to the early 1900s and is easily recognizable for its " eclectic " style and red colour. After this paved road, before proceeding to the Chiariventi region, you will be able to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Spotorno and the Bergeggi island. Surrounded by olive trees and scents of the Mediterranean maquis, you will reach the crossroads for the Castle of Monte Ursino which you can see by taking a short detour. You then get to the white chapel of N.S. dell'Addolorata, which is set on a rock overlooking the sea and the fifteenth-century Bishop's Palace with the sixteenth-century church of Nostra Signora delle Grazie that had been the Bishops' residence for over 500 years and is now converted into a hotel with a starred restaurant. Before going down to Noli, take another look at its bay and the promontory of Capo Noli, chosen by Captain de Albertis to build his hermitage.

Be well equipped

Think about the duration and type of hike: what could you need? Waterproof clothing? Sun protection? Water? For example, if you are thinking of visiting the caves or hiking to the top of a mountain, it might be a smart idea to dress in layers… even in summer!
