August may be getting closer, but we can't possibly go on holiday before having the most famous Ligurian hike&swim: taking place this Saturday is the "piscina naturale" event which, as every year at this time, is held in Portovenere. We'll follow a path leading to the Infinite trail, then head down to Portovenere and swim to Palmaria island.

For the uninitiated: this Saturday the Portovenere strait will be off limits for boats. From 3pm until evening, boats won't be allowed to cross it, thus making it feasible to swim from Portovenere to Palmaria. So that you know, the distance between Portovenere and Palmaria is around 200/250 metres.

As for the hiking part: let's meet at La Spezia around 10:20am and walk to Fabiano Alto. From there, we'll hike up to Campiglia and continue to Portovenere along the so called "infinite trail", so as to finish the hike in Portovenere. Hike is rated as "E" (intermediate)
