1. Genoa and its province
Along the Riviera di Levante of Liguria, there are several villages with unique charm. Among the most unforgettable and close to Genoa, there is Recco, a characteristic fishing village where you can discover such an ancient craft and all the delights that the sea gives us. In addition to its deep attachment to this noble profession, Recco is also famous for its excellent focaccia that you can enjoy in one of the different places, ready to delight you with many recipes based on fish.
Another charming town in the province of Genoa, is the town of Camogli that will fascinate you with its appearance out of the ordinary. Its houses, in fact, stand out for the bright colors with which the different facades are painted, creating a striking architectural rainbow that makes the view unique. Like many other Ligurian countries, Camogli also develops around a port where you can explore the culture and tradition of the region. Around this important city centre, there is also a beautiful pebble beach that will lead you to a truly fascinating tourist attraction, the lighthouse. Taking a romantic walk at sunset, while the waters lap the beach, is definitely one of the best ways to end this day of vacation decidedly magical.
After discovering Camogli, do not miss the opportunity to go and visit the famous and fascinating Abbey of San Fruttuoso. To reach this place you can decide to take two roads: to arrive after having undertaken a challenging but enchanting walk, or take the most comfortable but still fascinating ferry. In both cases, you'll be able to admire what is considered one of the most famous, beautiful and important monuments in Liguria. In fact, if it is possible to find buildings of great historical interest in the entire region, few can match the beauty of this Romanesque monastery built around the year 1000, right next to the Ligurian sea.
