August 2018: our Association does not benefit from any public public resources but is self-financing thanks to the annual fee paid by its associated accommodation facilities.

This is why we invite users to prefer and support these latter to those not associated that are still reported being anyway part of the entire reception network of Alta Via dei Monti Liguri. 

The environment and future generations will be grateful if, as far as possible, you will  avoid or reduce the consumption of foods packed in plastic containers and not use disposable table ware. Thank you!

I am the author of this on line guide that I try to keep always up to date also thanks to your reports: please do not hesitate to contact me if and when you have any remark to let me know.
