A few kilometres after riding over the Col de Palmarella, the Gulf of Girolata and the Scandola Nature Reserve come into sight.
Night in Porto.
No obligations today, leaving you to do whatever you fancy! Spend a lazy day on the beach... Explore the village, the Scandola natural reserve and the Calanches de Piana by boat... We’ll leave you to decide. A walk (or a ride) around the Calanches is also an option and definitely worth the effort. This porphyritic rock mass is now listed as a Unesco World Heritage site.
For those who are keen to spend the day on the bike there's an opportunity to tackle a 100 km loop that takes in the Col de Sevi (1101m).
