Grotte di Borgio Verezzi

The caves of Borgio Verezzi offer a tourist path that winds for about 800 meters inside large rooms, among huge blocks detached from the vault in remote eras. Very rich concretions of every shape: from the cannulae, thin and almost transparent, to the drapes, thin as sheets, to the large columns that seem to support the vault up to the eccentric stalactites, that defy the gravity force developing in all directions. And everywhere the colors: white, yellow, red in a thousand different shades. Due to the presence of various minerals, they make the Grotte di Borgio Verezzi the most colorful tourist cave in Italy.

Spectacular !!! Driving from Italy to France, we saw the sign and decided to stop. If you are interested in caves, grottos, stalactites this is the place for you. Hard to believe that this isn't a world class location. The tour takes about an hour. About 10-15 minutes from autostrada.

Finalborgo

Reviewed By ulysses4 - Westfield, Massachusetts

This old walled sector of the city is worth a visit. It can be very popular with tourists.. The medieval buildings and some attractive shops and restaurants reflect a neighborhood that is trying to earn a living from its ambiance and history. You can walk there or take a small bus from the vicinity of the city treain station.

Loano marina turned out to be somewhat puzzling to me. In a positive sense. Its divided into two parts: beach part (sunbeds are to be booked in prior) with nice bars/trattorias bordering this part. And marina itself - absolutely clean, modern design, good looking. Nice place to walk/jog/run.

Grotte di Toirano

The Toirano cave site is one of the main tourist attractions in Liguria and consists of the natural cavities of Basura and S. Lucia Inferiore. The Grotta della Basura (which means "witch"), discovered in 1950, is characterized by the presence of prints of men from the Upper Paleolithic Age and important palaeontological finds, mainly Cave Bear bones ("Ursus Spelaeus"). The bones of these plantigrades, which were typical of the Pleistocene Epoch and used to visit the cave during hibernation, can still be seen in the "Bear Cemetery" (about 30,000 years old). Foot, hand and knee prints of Homo Sapiens Sapiens can be found in the clay concretions of the "Print Corridor" (about 12,000 years old). In the cave rooms you will find a wide variety of stalactites and stalagmites, different in shape and size, as well as the typical "mammillary" concretions. The last part of the cave, which used to be under water, is very picturesque, with its peculiar, rounded concretions entirely covered in a uniform, light-yellow layer of tiny calcite crystals. In the Grotta di S. Lucia Inferiore, discovered in 1960, both the limestones and the walls of the wide rooms are covered in calcite flowers and aragonite crystals. The two caves, connected by an artificial tunnel, are about 1,300m long and can be visited in about 70 minutes.

An attraction worth every minute visit. It is constantly a "wow- feel" during the tour.
Amazing formations that you will come close with nice colors. Very good guidance in a competent manner by well-trained, serious and motivated staff.
I can highly recomend this cave for all who are interested in this knowledge!

Reviewed By Peter M - London, England, United Kingdom

We discovered this beach a few years ago after a bit f trial and error. This beach is perfect for young children as the bay around it embraces the beach and keeps children in clear sight.
We now discovered that the food is excellent. Fresh, traditional and original. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Reviewed By Gius-Anna-123 - Moncalieri, Italy

Nel bel centro pedonale di Pietra, il grandioso Duomo ruba la scena ; dalla grande piazza antistante si ammira la simmetrica e scenografica facciata con tinte chiare e belle lavorazioni ; all'interno si nota l'ampiezza della volta con il grandioso affresco centrale e poi si scoprono belle opere, tra stucchi e decori ; per chi conosce bene l'arte, questa è la chiesa giusta.

Tia Pepa

Reviewed By davidik - Milano

Finalborgo in questi ultimi anni si sta trasformando E da sola chiuso retro bottega di finale sta diventando il centro di interesse per tanti turisti. Sono sorti diversi localini e tre tanti abbiamo scelto il Tua Pepa. Il locale ti accoglie con un terribile color albicocca alle pareti e una struttura in mattoni in parte ancora originale, ma una vera accoglienza non c'è e ti pare di entrare in una semplice paninoteca. Il servizio non è dei migliori, piuttosto frettoloso e freddo con prezzi per turisti però bisogna dire che le piadine che abbiamo preso erano davvero davvero buone. Alla fine anche il personale si è rivelato più simpatico del previsto... non so se gli altri locali simili siano migliori ma penso che nei prossimi volte cercherò dei confronti...

We lived here an year back. The beach and the drive through Via Aurelia is a felling that words can never express. You have the Mediterranean Sea on one side and you drive by it on the cliffy Mountains on a straight road created during Roman time, named under queen Aurelia, goes on till Rome.... Bella Vista

Bagni Garibaldi

Reviewed By ArmadilloBG

Centrally located in Finale Ligure. Has all facilities to make your day at the beach comfortable: hot and cold showers, toilette, changing cabin, food and drinks, free wifi, good service, reasonable price (being solo I even got a discount for bed, chair and umbrella combo which was a big plus). Bagni Garibaldi is not as big as some other Beaches around, but I didn't feel that I miss anything and the sea is just the same for everybody. :-)

Spiaggia Ex Soggiorno Leonessa

Reviewed By Valentina R - Monza, Italy

Una delle poche spiagge di Pietra Ligure in cui i nostri amici animali possono correre, giocare e fare il bagno in libertà. La spiaggia dispone di una doccia per i cani e di ciotole e acqua a volontà. Ho passato dei giorni fantastici con la mia famiglia e la mia cagnolina che si è divertita tantissimo. Consigliato!
