During a recent visit to Liguria, My wife and I were told about a 45 minute walk we could take up the Italian Alps to the Rifugio Mongioie for lunch. So we went for it! We drove from Imperia through Ormea Colle di Nava and arrived at Viozene. The hike starts behind the church in the center of the town. It is well marked out and quite steep. It was suggested we call ahead to reserve a table for lunch. After 45 minutes we arrived and were pleased to see that a table was prepared for us! The views of the mountains were incredible! We took a ton of photos and videos but realized they would never be able to truly capture the beauty of the area. When we arrived at the Rifugio we were kindly greeted and the food soon arrived. It was the perfect meal and I think it cost us about 30 euros total. There are also free and clean restrooms available. After dinner we wandered about marveling at natures beauty! On this particular day they were setting up for a concert for all of the Alpine Hikers! We didn't realize how popular this was until our walk back down the mountain. We encountered MANY people on their way up! It was a great hike.

A two hours walk to be there. The landscape is great, and you will be at the "Rifugio" you would be pleased of the long walk. Get yr home-made meal (don't miss Polenta, and great pastas), then abandon yrselves to enjoy sun, landscape and peace.
