Mountain Biking

Liguria has been a few years considered one of the world capitals of Mountain biking, so that in Finale Ligure takes place one of the stages of the World Cup.

Many sportsmen prefer Dolceacqua as an ideal destination for Mountain biking. The reasons are different:

  • The tracks are less trafficked and surrounded by unspoilt nature
  • is a less inflationary destination
  • There are technically more enjoyable routes
  • It is only 30 minutes from Nice International Airport
