Directions
One of the best-known climbs on the Ligurian Riviera, the passes of Ginestro and il Testico often form part of the winter professional riders' circuit and feature in races such as the Trofeo Laigueglia and the Giro di Liguria.

The sunny aspect of this route means it is also enjoyable in the winter months.
