The Italian resort of Finale Ligure is one of the best coastal riding spots in Europe, and the guys at MTB Beds have brought you this no nonsense, comprehensive guide to getting the most out of your stay there.
Finale Ligure is on the stunning Ligurian coast, around 1 hour from Genoa and 2 hours from central Nice. It’s location and size make it the perfect mix of a tourist hub with that quaint individual character you crave on any kind of holiday. With sandy Mediterranean beaches, a vibrant eating and drinking culture amongst cobbled streets and Roman architecture, Finale Ligure is a holiday in itself even without the bike.
With a permanent population of around 12,000 it has all the amenities a decent sized town should and despite the constant Italian hum of a Vespa engine it’s generally a quiet place. In the famous square you’ll often see an old Milanese couple, suited and booted and sipping martinis, quite comfortable with the group of 6 English lads drinking a beer after a day riding the amazing trail network, while kids run around, play on balance bike and much gelato in the large piazza the bars surround.
