Hello, I’m Roberto, your bike manager at Hotel San Giuseppe and I recommend this hotel for
Sitting on the doorstep of the French riviera, just a few kilometres away from the world-famous finish line of Milan-Sanremo, the Bike Hotel San Giuseppe is the ideal location from which to begin your next cycling holiday in Italy.
Since it sits on the Mediterranean coast, this region of Italy is ideal for year-round cycling thanks to a warm, moderate climate. It’s no surprise that so many of the world’s best professional riders base themselves in this part of Europe — and it’s likely you may see a few on their training rides during your stay.
Dedicated road cyclists will be familiar with this area already, thanks to Milan-Sanremo. Here, you can tackle the infamous Poggio and relive the history of this epic race. However, it is also worth crossing the border into France to challenge yourself on the climbs the pros call home; Col de la Madone, Col d’Eze and Col de Braus — all easily accessible from the Hotel San Giuseppe and well worth the effort to absorb stunning views of the Mediterranean at the top.
For mountain bikers, the Finalese hosts a dense network of trails, singletrack and fireroad which ascend toward the high mountains above the coast, offering beautiful panoramas and some of the best MTB routes in Italy. Finale Ligure has become a pilgrimage for many mountain bikers in recent years, with races like the 24H di Finale Ligure and the Superenduro World Championships being hosted here. Regardless, MTB in Italy is at its best here, whether you’re into cross-country, downhill or enduro.
