In lush nature, a place with an intense past and a tranquil lifestyle. Amongst pockets of historical value, churches and regenerating panoramas

Discover a “city” in the heart of the upper Scrivia valley, not far from Genoa. It grew on the banks of a large river, has a past of feudal domination, battles between the Guelphs and Ghibellines and historical raids. Now it is a tranquil town, perfect to spend regenerating moments in the green. It boasts traces and examples of architectural, civil and religious value, like its castle, the old bridge, the delightful Villa Borzino or the church of San Giorgio in a scenic position. Stroll around the old town and do some window shopping or stop for a coffee, then relax and delight your taste buds with special, unique specialities like rose syrup, a refreshing drink with curative properties.
