Savona Riviera Delle Palme, Italy
Nozio takes you to explore the charming Riviera delle Palme (Palm Riviera), a long coastline measuring over 100 kilometers, extending west from Genoa out to Alassio. For several decades, this tract of coastline has been a tourist center for sunbathing and swimming; the consistently mild climate makes it enjoyable to visit this area even out of season, thereby avoiding the summer crowds.Varigotti: this picturesque town faces onto the Baia dei Saraceni (Saracen Bay). Immediately eye-catching are its red, yellow, and ochre colored-houses along the beach. Its alleyways inspired the stories of Hemingway and Cesare Pavese. Here the sea is one of the most beautiful along the Riviera.
How to get there: all the cities along the Riviera are easily reachable by train or by car by way of Highway A10 Genova-Ventimiglia. However, the best way to get there is by taking the SP 1 coastal road, where you can enjoy the tranquil panorama of the coastline.
This itinerary requires at least two days. There are a great number of hotels on the Riviera delle Palme, from 4-star hotels to family-owned pensions, but if you want something different, there is also an excellent selection of bed and breakfasts on the Riviera delle Palme or, why not, a farmhouse accommodation among the lush vegetation of the Riviera hinterland.
