You will also find a station of the Bike sharing Finale service in Varigotti, a seaside village with original Saracen-style houses located a few kilometers away. Alternatively, from your holiday home you can reach this renowned seaside resort by taking the path that, after crossing the bridge over the Sciusa stream in Finalpia and the Castelletto di San Donato, runs along the beaches and the port of Finale Ligure up to the Torre di Punta Crena: from here you will appreciate an exceptional view.

Things to do in Finale Ligure
Finale Ligure is the ideal base for active holidays, thanks to the limestone rocks characterized by holes and holds, which make them perfect for free climbing, and to an extensive network of paths for trekking and mountain bike that touch caves inhabited since prehistoric times.
Visit the Archaeological Museum of Finale, housed in the monumental complex of Santa Caterina, to discover the rich history of this area through precious finds and scenic settings. The museum also offers educational workshops on experimental archaeology dedicated to children and the Archeotrekking Finale initiative, which includes guided tours and speleological explorations to the caves and other archaeological sites around the village.
What to eat in Finale Ligure
In addition to all the typical dishes of Ligurian cuisine, such as the famous pesto sauce and the many recipes based on fresh fish, in Finale Ligure you can taste the fugassin, fried scones with potatoes, and the chifferi, almond sweets that you will also find in the chocolate variant.
At aperitif time, try the chinotto, a typical drink with a slightly bitter taste based on the homonymous citrus fruit, or delicate white DOC wines such as Lumassina, produced in nearby Feglino, Vermentino and Pigato.
Nature in Liguria is accessible to everyone
By booking your stay in the western Italian Riviera with Fairbnb.coop you can support the initiative of the Community-based Cooperative Terre di Nava for the creation of a “Common path” surrounded by nature, sustainable and accessible to all because it is also equipped for disabled people.
The path will consist of a circular route, which can be easily covered in about an hour; during the journey, it will be possible to immerse yourself in the colors and scents of lavender, collect it and learn about its history, discover plants and aromas.
This experience can also be lived by people who are often excluded from direct contact with nature and the feeling of well-being and freedom that this can give: a part of the donations will in fact be destined for the purchase of a trekking wheelchair and for the creation of information panels in Braille.
