Highlights and tour details

Depart from the parking lot in front of the Museo dei Campionissimi in Novi Ligure. Leaving the museum, turn left at the roundabout, take the first exit. Following  along  Corso Piave then turn right onto Via Antica Genova continuing along the road to Gavi.

You start a gentle incline coming out of the town of Novi and then go smoothly along the crest of the hills. It is a  winding road through woods and cultivated fields with little traffic, and an enchanting landscape. Near the Valle crossroad with the provincial road from Serravalle (be careful!), Turn right in the direction of Gavi.

Having passed through the village take the road to San Cristoforo and afterwards head for  Capriata d'Orba. On entering Capriata take the Provincial Road 177 through the center and on to take Via Stazione. Leaving the village you cross the ford on the River Orba and continue in the direction of the motorway overpass.

After crossing, take a left onto the SP 185. Follow the road for a long stretch alongside the highway and then turn right towards San Giacomo. Here at the junctions continue in the direction of Cascina Vecchia, after passing the group of houses, turn left in the direction of Carpeneto. A short uphill brings us to the center of the small hilltop village. Continuing down to the valley, proceed in the direction of Trisobbio and then to Morsasco.

This is where all the uphill sections of the route  come to an end . Beyond the village of Morsasco the winding road descends towards Prasco and then to  Visone and then after a few flat kilometers,  onwards to reach the center of the thermal  spa town.
