VM01 - THE VIA DEL MARE

The Via del Mare coincides with the Via dei Longobardi up to  Oramala, from there the path descends to Varzi where it is also possible to spend the night(from Montesegale to Varzi distance is 17.4 km). From Varzi a very steep climb leads to Monte Chiappo. There are two unmanned huts (at 12.5 and 15.3 km from Varzi) that may serve as good spots for a break.
