Want to do a short workout between delicious meals? This hiking trip is only about seven miles long. But you get to see the spectacular Western Italian Coast. The trek takes you through five cities, each with its own culture. Winter is a good time to go because the weather is cooler and you don’t see as many tourists. The best known trail is Trail #2 – the Sentiero Azzurro (Blue Trail). The “Lover’s Lane” is the easiest part of the trek because it’s wide, flat and paved.
