The best Ligurian coastal towns

Everywhere in Liguria there are many fishing villages and ancient villages where you can eat some typical products

If you are travelling through the Province of Imperia you should go to Arma di Taggia (well known for its olives) and Cervo, where you can also see the Baroque church of St. John the Baptist.

In the Province of Savona you should go to the fishing villages of Laigueglia and Varigotti. Laigueglia, with the beach, the tower on the sea, the boats where the fishermen fix the nets. Varigotti, of medieval origin, is unique for its colorful houses with terraced rooftops overlooking the beach.

In Genoa you should totally visit Boccadasse and Vernazzola, known for their ancient maritime origins, although many ancient fishers’ houses are now luxury lofts. Camogli is remembered for its traditions with pride, when thousands of illuminated floating on the waves, during the celebration for “Stella Maris”,  to pay homage to Our Lady, the fisherman's patron.

Travelling through the Province of La Spezia you totally have to visit Sestri Levante, followed by Tellaro, standing on a cliff edge on the Golfo of La Spezia. Portovenere, named by its Tempio di Venere, it’s a perfect place to enjoy the view.
