Located halfway between Genoa and France, Loano is the ideal destination for a holiday on the Riviera delle Palme.

Not only does this location enjoy a mild climate all year round, but this popular resort offers a unique mix of natural beauty and art history.

Among the first, just remember the fascinating caves of Toirano, not far from Loano, or Mount Carmo (1389 meters) which offer a wonderful vantage point to admire the coastline and lush hinterland.

From an historical and artistic point of view the medieval core is worth visiting, dominated by the castle and walled, the Doria Palace is considered one of the most representative examples of civil Renaissance in Liguria; the sixteenth century Church of San Giovanni Battista, which hosts paintings by Genovese artists.

In the central streets of Loano you can also admire the many fountains created by modern and contemporary artists.

Particularly fascinating is also the settlement area close to the sea, which preserves the traditional look of coastal villages, with the typical aligned houses and an alley. Ideal for a relaxing stroll on the seafront, bejeweled by beautiful gardens and picnic areas, and the expanding marina.

A few kilometers away we can find some of the most beautiful and picturesque towns in Italy: Castelbianco, Finalborgo, Laigueglia, Zuccarello, true “treasures”, witnesses of the most authentic and ancient face of Liguria.
