Located in the municipality of Borghetto Santo Spirito, the Toirano Caves represent one of the main attractions in Liguria. Go on an astonishing journey through stalactites and stalagmites, inside what was once the shelter for cave bears. The caves are also famous for their historical and archaeological value, as you can even see footprints of Homo Sapiens there!
Varigotti is well-known for the vivid colours of the plasterwork on its buildings in the Saracen village and the beauty and quality of its beaches, making it a famous tourist resort with a strong seafaring character.
Panissa is made with chickpea flour, water and salt and is cut into half-moon shapes and fried, this has led to them being known as Fette, meaning ‘slices’.
‘Panissa con la Fugassetta’ is one of the best-loved local dishes and has become Savona’s first to be listed on as a municipal delicacy, Denominazione Comunale di Origine, or De.CO. You can taste it in historic cafes and restaurants in the centre of Savona.
The stretch of sea that laps the Liguria coast, along with Tuscany, Sardinia and France, is characterised by being one of the richest areas of marine life in the Mediterranean. And the Pelagos Sanctuary was created to preserve the conservation status of the sea’s cetaceans. Trips are organised to watch these marvellous marine mammals, with a focus on the impact of humans on the environment. Whale watching from a boat or a sailing boat – a thrill to be experienced!
