At the end of the back straight the path is separated from the Aurelia way, and approaches to the town of Taggia, in Prati area. Here the path goes through cultivated lands arriving to a long bridge over Argentina stream, which it gives the name of the valley where is Taggia and his coastal part Arma di Taggia.
