Archeobike. Roman Bridges tour.
Can you visit a museum by bike?
In Finale Ligure, the answer can only be yes!
The wide range of paths that MTB riders can take also passes through sites of historical interest. Are you interested in prehistory, the mysteries of early humans, their way of life, and rituals? Then there is nothing better than the “Ciappi Tour”.
An easy route, suitable for everyone, leading to San Bernardino to discover the Ciappo dei Ceci and Ciappo delle Conche.
What are the “Ciappi”? These are large stones where, in prehistoric times (some historians refer to the Iron Age), the first inhabitants of the Finale area engraved signs, dug cupels, and small canals. What were they for? Perhaps to collect rainwater and drain it into small troughs for the beasts, perhaps for propitiatory rites.
For those who prefer later history (so to speak), what could be better than an MTB tour along the Roman Bridges: the five bridges that can still be crossed along ancient Via Iulia Augusta (13-12 B.C.) that connected Cisalpine Gaul with Transalpine Gaul?
Riding through history for an experience of discovery!
