  • Who would have thought to find mines of almost 6,000 years ago in a place so little noticed. Should be visited by all schools of Liguria and northern Tuscany, entered into popular tourist routes from neighboring towns including the Museum, the tour accompanied and guided an independent sequence places exploited earlier. The Guide on Sunday, Luca, is a passionate expert in nature and will make you appreciate flora, fauna (bats are confined) and minerals (copper). Suggest you look for some piece of weapon, trinket or pan to enrich the Museum room. Check it out!

  • Sunday afternoon we decided to see the copper mines recommend us to friends. The Guide Luke who greeted us was very comprehensive and very simply my 8 year old daughter involved. The small museum contains many artifacts, but enough things to make them become powerful tools help passion that transport you to other eras ... congratulations for the little hidden jewel, really a surprise and thanks to who passionately takes visitors to this little hidden corner of Liguria.

  • Sunday visit (reservation required) to the mine of Monte Loreto, in the town of Boulder, a 10-minute drive from Sestri Levante. He welcomed the kind guide Luca, who first introduced the tiny corner Museum, explaining the mining history of the area (dating back to nearly 6000 years ago) and the mining techniques used in past centuries to derive the valuable copper. Simple, clear, understandable and engaging speeches for everyone. Then we moved to the entrance of the old mine "XX Settembre" 5 minutes walk downhill on nice trail. Here, with appropriate helmet, we explored the Gallery open (will only 2 or 300 meters) listening always accurate explanations of the Guide. The whole thing lasted an hour and a half good. Adult price 7 euro, well spent. Immediately after returning to the Museum, on our own but following the instructions of the Guide, we caught up with 5 minute walk along a trail, the archaeological area where you can see traces of the excavations and prehistoric extractions. Overall don't expect an unforgettable and unique experience but a visit interesting and informative, with the added bonus of a great guide.
