Apricale to Finalborgo and Noli


The bus tour Apricale to Finalborgo and Noli on the 15th of april 2012.

The bus left at 7.30 from Apricale with 36 people looking forward to a wonderfull day together.

First stop  was Finalborgo. The village is part of the association "I Borghi piu belli d'Italia" and everyone could see why. It's a beautiful village with a castle looking down on the city center. In the city center there are many small shops and bars and restaurants. Also the old monastery was worth visiting. After two hours we went on to Finale Ligure where we boarded two smaller buses. They took us up to the restaurant "da Cucco" in the mountains. It is close to Montecello. The lunch was splendid with 13 different courses. Gabriele played his guitar and everyone had a lot of fun. After lunch we had time to take a wonderful photo of the "Squadra Apricale".

From the restaurant we drove back to Finale Ligure and boarded the coach again for the next stop in Noli, another member of  "I Borghi piu belli d'Italia". Everyone had a walk through the historic center of Noli and on the beach we saw beautiful old coloured boats that make Noli such a special seaside village.

The bus was back in Apricale at around 9.00 pm after a wonderfull day and we agreed that we want to do this again another time.
