Candeasco & San Lazzaro Reale

Candeasco The placename harks back to its agricultural Roman-Ligurian roots. That is to say, 2,000 years ago these places were already inhabited and being cultivated. The internal streets are arranged in a way that connects them to the ancient roads leading to the neighbouring villages. The fulcrum....

La Val Nervia

In Val Nervia, a short distance from the coast, there are some “inland capitals” and Dolceacqua is rightfully the most important. Built on ancient Roman-Ligurian foundations, it nipped its development in the bud during the late Middle Ages, due to the power of the Genoan Doria family. Dolceacqua....

Ventimiglia

The last Italian city before the border with our French cousins. Three cities in one: the Roman city of Nervia, rediscovered between the 19th and 20th centuries, with a theatre, thermal baths, houses, tombs, and many objects to be seen in the Girolamo Rossi Archaeological Musuem and in the Antiquari....
