near Diano Marina
Toward the Cote d’Azur
It goes without saying that one of the favorite excursions for guests on holiday on the Riviera of Flowers is a visit to the nearby Cote d’Azur. Don’t forget that we are only 1 hour away (by car) from the Principality of Monaco and from Montecarlo, one hour and 15 minutes from Nice and circa 1 hour and 40 minutes from Cannes.
The Riviera of Flowers … and Oil!
Beside the natural wonders and the Liguria landscapes, your visit will also be an excellent occasion to taste the genuine products of our land. The vegetable gardens created (not without effort) by peasants on the region’s stone terraces allow the production of low-acidity extra-virgin oil (produced with the well-known "taggiasca" olive, which is also delicious served in brine) and refined wines such as Vermentino and Pigato.
Towns for every taste
On the Riviera of Flowers you will find both mundane towns located on the coast, particularly suitable for traditional tourism – such as Alassio, Sanremo and Diano Marina itself - and medieval villages perched on the hills – pearls of rare beauty such as Cervo, Triora, Apricale, Dolceacqua, Pigna and Bussana Vecchia.
A few recommended places to visit:
Near Diano Marina an enchanting medieval town looks onto the sea: Cervo. Don’t miss the splendid view from the square of the majestic Corallini Church. Another interesting site in the town is the ethnographic museum, where you can learn about the lifestyle of the region’s peasants.
In the main city of our province, you should definitely visit the Ponente Ligure International Naval Museum located in the square of the Porto Maurizio Cathedral, and we also recommend the Olive Tree Museum in Imperia Oneglia.
- Savona e dintorni
In Savona and its surroundings, we recommend a walk in the Alassio “budello”, the ancient neighborhood where you will find excellent shopping opportunities. We also recommend visiting the historical center of Albenga.
