Catch the bus to Polperro and walk back to Looe. This part of Cornwall had lively trading links with the Mediterranean up to three millennia ago, and it is said that Jesus visited Looe with his uncle, Phoenician tin trader Joseph of Arimathea. There are the ruins of a medieval chapel to be seen on the site of a Celtic monastery, as well as the much more recent banjo pier and a monument to one of Looe's more unusual visitors. Once you have climbed the steep hill above Polperro Harbour there is not too much ascent or descent.
