Torri Superiore is situated in the foothills of the Ligurian Alps, in a small valley crossed by the beautiful Bevera River. The climate is mild throughout the year, with temperate winters and cool summers in this part of Mediterranean Italy making it perfect for walking, trekking, exploring and relaxing. The local vegetation is evergreen, with Mediterranean shrubs, ancient olive trees, holly-oaks, lemons, oranges and mimosa.
Many beautiful excursions on foot are possible from Torri. Monte Grammondo (1300m), where one can find the Gerry Refuge is close by, and the Sentiero Balcone (Balcony Trail) links Torri with the villages of Collabassa, Airole, Rocchetta Nervina and Villatella. River hiking is also possible along the gorges and small waterfalls of the Bevera. Originating in France, the river forms natural pools at many points along its length that are perfect for summer swimming.
Walking to the nearby village of Torri di Ventimiglia (population 250) one can find further impressive examples of medieval architecture, as well as a bar/restaurant, a local shop, the church and a small museum devoted to the olive press.
Torri is also well situated for making journeys by car. Many nearby Italian and French towns can be easily reached including Dolceaqcua, Perinaldo and Baiardo in the Nervia Valley, Bordighera and Sanremo on the Riviera dei Fiori (Flowers Coast), and Menton, Monaco and Nice on the Côte d’Azur. Also in France, the famous Valleè des Marveilles is less than an hour’s drive away in direction of Tenda; on the Piedmont side of the Alps, the ski slopes of Limone are about one hour away by train.
