Giant bench rhymes with ... guaranteed fun!

Ten years after the birth of the Big Bench Community Project, also among our Gavi Hills two "giant benches" where installed, making the landscape even more evocative.
In the small town of Mornese you can find the n. 57: after a short walk of about ten minutes you will find yourself on a viewpoint that really leaves you breathless: on clear days you can even see the Monviso and Monte Rosa.
Here's where the location.

A little curiosity: the choice of the colors of the Mornese bench, red and yellow, is not random: in fact it is a tribute to the two great wines typical of the area, the Cortese di Gavi Docg, the "Great Piedmontese White Wine", and the fragrant Ovada Docg.

Continuing our tour we arrive at the other giant bench, the n. 84: it is located in Bosio, on top of a hill, and is the ideal place to enjoy a spectacular sunset over the vineyards.
You can find it here.

But it does not end here: moving towards the uncontaminated Val Borbera we find another giant bench, the n. 266. We are in the tiny hamlet of Montemanno, in the municipality of Mongiardino Ligure: the panoramic position allows us to admire the mountains that embrace and protect the valley, the Ebro, the Giarolo, the Cosfrone and the Antola.
Here's where to find it.
