Historical hill-side path known as "Strada comunale Reggio-San Bernardino". It follows the ancient way of the Sanctuaries and connects the Nostra Signora di Reggio Sanctuary with the Nostra Signora delle Grazie Sanctuary in San Bernardino. The path departs from the square of the Madonna di Reggio Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary, whose first origins date back to 1284, offers an equipped area in a panoramic viewpoint adorned with holm oaks, cedar trees and horse chestnut trees. Noteworthy is the presence in the square of a hundred-year-old cypress, which is considered as the most ancient in Liguria.

At the side of the square there is also a source. From here the path (asphalted) goes up briefly and, once passed Case Begotto, enters the Vernazza provincial road. Then take a short stretch of road in the direction of Vernazza (about 200 meters) to leave it near an obvious curve by taking an uphill path on the left. You cross Rocche in the middle of olive groves and you reach Casa Fontanella and a little further on, Case Pollazzo. Leaving the road that serves the houses, start climbing again along the path. You will soon reach Le Stalle and the Valle di Bona wood. Continue through the terraced vineyards of Buecia and descend towards Teasca. You then cross the ditch of Re Molino and reach the village of Murro Superiore. Here the dominant wood leaves room for the terraces of vineyards. You pass the built-up area and proceeding in a false plane through the locality of Seroa, until you reach the graft with the carriage road and then cross path no. 507 near the Sanctuary of San Bernardino.
