If you are looking for a vacation characterized by sun, sea and outdoor the Palm’ Riviera is the place for you!
Borgio Verezzi is a seaside resort characterized by a double soul: one maritime, represented by Borgio, ancient village on a low hill that softly slopes down to the beach and the sea. and the other hilly, that it is Verezzi, 200 metres from the sea.
The paved roads of Borgio lead to the gradually sloping down Piazza San Pietro and to its white 18th-century church, and further toward the sixteenth-century sighting tower, one of the so many of Ligurian Coast, for long centuries submitted to the risk of pirate raids.
Verezzi, very ancient village, dominates from its height a long part of the coast of this Riviera, offering splendid andsuggestive panoramas and marvellous sunsets of which you will be able to take pictures, souvenirs of an unforgettable vacation. Verezzi has four hamlets and they are more than 900 years old. Saracens liked it and it is from this origin that the architectural style in which the houses of Verezzi were built takes the name of "Saracen." Suggestive it is also the scenery that the visitor can see: it will be as making a trip in thepast walking along the narrow pebbles alleys, arcades and small squares, stone benches and wash-houses, among the scattered groups of stone houses , clear houses like the rock of the dry walls of the terraced fields where olive trees and even locusts grow. On the top of the hill there is also a mill, which is said "Phoenician" for its construction technique.
In the hamlet of Piazza di Verezzi, in the suggestive Piazza Sant'Agostino, for more than 40 years the International Festival of the Theatre and the National Prize Veretiumhas held. And when the sun goes down, in the warm summer evenings, while actors rehearse the show that they will put on the stage in the evening, among the clinks of the dishes of the restaurants in Verezzi every year a marvellous marriage between nature and culture is celebrated.
Naturally sun-tan lovers will find the way to also satisfy their desires also in Borgio where the sea is characterized by shallow waters, a rocky shoal covered by sand and deep only half meter rich in sea flora and fauna.
The walks along the nature paths and a visit to Valdemino caves are certainly a good alternative to the classical sea holiday.
The caves of Borgio are one of the so many examples of caves of calcareous formation in which our region is rich. They are phenomena born by the infiltration of the meteorological water in the rocky ground that caused after years the erosion of the underlying rocks with the consequent formation of underground caves. Valdemino caves are a labyrinth of some kilometres whose 800 metres are open to the public. Thanks to the presence of varied mineral the colours will strike you during the visit: white, yellow, red in thousand different tones make Borgio Verezzi Caves the most coloured tourist cave in Italy.
