Travel report

The surprise in the morning was that the hotel offered breakfast only in the room and at the same time referred to the cafes around the corner. The breakfast around the corner was very simple, the coffee was an espresso. Formule petit déjeuner for 5.50 €.

From the hotel we cycled to the seaside and along this to the border.

Before the border, we turned left onto the old road, which climbs 150 meters in a even gradient and then drops back 130 meters. A little later we were 50 meters higher again. This of course was exhausting, but was always rewarded with beautiful views from high above the coast and to the mountainsides with their villages.

In Ventimiglia we arrived "at the bottom". The charming sides of the city we did not discover and cycled through it.

Behind the river Nervia we turned to the sea and then cycled for about 2½ kilometers along the coast. The beach was rocky here and today little visited. The wind blew us hard on the face for the first time today and we made slower progress. In Bordighera we therefore decided not to visit the old center on the hill.

Behind the place we were back on road SS1. The traffic was bearable and we had more to do with the wind. The tunnel of road SS1, which is closed to cyclists, we circumnavigated on the old road. Before Termini, the road climbed again to about 75 meters above MSL. But that was already the last strong climb of the day.

In Ospedaletti begins the cycle track, which has been excellently developed on the former railway line for 24 kilometers. The Capo Nero we have passed through a 1½ kilometer tunnel. The tunnel ceiling is provided with information on cycling events.

At the former station of Sanremo we took a rest. Behind the station building there is a series of Art Nouveau buildings.

On the next few kilometers followed two smaller tunnels and at Cipressa again a large tunnel with 1½ kilometers in length. The views of the sea and the coast were always impressive moments. Towards the landside it is less beautiful, sometimes even mutilated by greenhouses.

In San Lorenzo the bike path is over and we cycled again on road SS1. The silhouette of Porto Maurizio, our destination in Imperia, was already in sight. From the road again beautiful views over the sea. The last few kilometers we cycled about 30 meters above the sealevel.

In Porto Maurizio we immediately found a hotel with a bicycle garage. The owner speaks fluent German and was very committed. Our request for a taxi to Colle di Nave he had clarified immediately.

A tour through the old town offered interesting insights into the structure of the different eras of the city. Winding alleys, narrow streets between the houses, great views of the sea and the surrounding countryside. And as a significant architectural building the cathedral.
