Italy has beautiful destination ports, the charming characteristics, festivals, history, cuisine and culture. You will really see why the region is ideal for chartering. Nestled in the North of Italy, near Genoa, the sharp Ligurian coastline rises to hillsides and in the distance, mountains. To the South West, further along the coast, lies Monaco and the French Riviera. The distinction between the two Rivieras is that the Ligurian has not lost its heritage and character. It is less developed, but oozes Italian charisma instead.
The Liguria coastline has been ruled by many cultures through the ages. The significance of Genoa as a trading port is testament to this. In order to develop trade routes Genoa became a busy commercial hub, ruled by the Normans, Romans, Barbarians and more recently Napoleon.
The medieval festival of Torta Dei Fieschi is held annually in Lavagna. Originating from the thirteenth century. It commemorates the wedding between Count Opizza Fieschi and Bianca De Bianchi. In mid August a huge cake is prepared, using traditional pastry. The cake is carried through the ancient streets.
This parade goes back to medieval times. Symbolically reuniting the six neighborhoods of Lavagna. Once the parade finishes, the cake is distributed to the crowds.
