Excursions Guided excursions in the gulf

Diano Marina is not only a sea resort because you can also discover a fantastic hinterland not far away.

The hotel is only a few minutes away on foot from the ligurian path (from Luni to Ventimiglia) which is part of the Ligurian hiking network.
Every year we engage a tourist guide to lead our clients to the discovery of the interland on a series of walking tours for free. Take advantage of this offer and check with us for the dates of excursions, it’s free:

The Gulf of Diano includes 7 main centers: Diano Marina, Diano Arentino Diano San Pietro, Villa Faraldi, San Bartolomeo al Mare, and Cervo.

Cervo is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy; you can get there by bike, car or even by bus
Another important historical center with a fantastic view of the Gulf is Diano Castello and you can easily reach it by riding one of our electric bikes.
If you want to take a longer tour among the olive trees, we suggest you go up to Diano Castello then continue to Diano Arentino. To return go down the hill to Diano Borello and then to Diano San Pietro. When you reach Diano Marina ride onto the inner road (the Rovere) running parallel to the main road (Via Aurelia) until you arrive to Cervo. Then back to Diano Marina riding on the sea front.


From the 6th of July to the 6th of September, we have a guide who will  show you the Dianese gulf and the surrounding areas. Join an excursion for free, we will pay for it!

We recommend that you bring breathable technical clothing, shoes with soles suitable for trails and dirt roads, protection from the sun, a windbreaker and a good supply of water.
