We head towards Imperia, near the Porto Maurizio area and go up towards the hinterland, passing through the small hamlet of "Caramagna" where our ascent begins, with a fantastic climb surrounded by olive groves and a splendid view of the sea. We continue to climb on a road with little traffic, as it passes through small towns and, after 7 km we arrive in the village of Vasia, where you can find a fountain to fill the water bottles. The panorama is relaxing, with a nature that dominates the territory unchallenged: the right satisfaction after so many km of cycling in the open air! But it is not over yet: leaving Vasia behind us, we continue on a valley road that remains at high altitude and leads us to admire the "county of Pietralata", an ancient fortification dating back to the fifteenth century. Continuing, then, you end with the flat stretch in the town of Pantasina, then head downhill to Molini di Prelà and, returning to the valley, you pass through the town of Dolcedo and go along the Prino stream to the sea; the excursion closes going towards Sanremo for the return to the main road.
