Piemonte and Liguria--Last Minute Advice?

Jump to last reply

Before I head out, I figured I'd check one last time for any tips I may have missed (have read just about every previous post on these places). I'll be in Asti one night and then briefly in Alba--just want a taste of the region. I have restaurant recommendations within both cities --no car (La Libera seems to be the must). I'm planning on visiting the Alba tourist office for trekking routes, as I'd like to walk or bike the outskirts (Neive and vineyards).

Once in Camogli, I'll be staying in San Rocco (thanks, Zappole) where I will dine at Nonna Nina's at least once (maybe every night if my knees are aching too much to head into Camogli). I've found there are places for snacks in San Rocco and Ruta (have Downie and Plotkin books), so our hikes throughout the Portofino Peninsula will be well-provisioned. In addition to the coastal hike, I'll investigate heading up to the mountain and down to Rapallo via cable car. I've got bus schedules, so I only need to pick up hiking trail maps in Camogli.
When not hiking, I plan on visiting Genoa, Chiavari, Sestri Levante.

Finally, I breeze through Milan so that one day/night will be spent leisurely and pensively withdrawing from paradise. One last thought: I will be there for the Recco focaccia festa, but is that anything more than it sounds--a festive day of focaccia eating? Not sure if I want to sacrifice my one day in Milan for that. Anyway, wish me luck with the hiking, and please chime in if you have any additional suggestions.
