Travel Tips for Lavagna

Lavagna - fake fassades

by globetrott


Like in many other villages on the Ligurian
coast many buildings have a great fassade with
painted structures that give you the realistic
feeling to see small benches,columns or niches...

The Trimaran in full size

by globetrott

This is the trimaran in full size and still on the " dry dock "

In the middle-hull there will be the tiny cockpit for 1 or 2 skippers and just a bit of a space to move around.
And also the cabin consists of a very small room only with a small bed, tiny cooking facilities & a chart-table

But This is a high-speed and high-performance racing-yacht of course, that was built to take part in the most famous sailing competitions of the world... Cotonella underwear again...

Lovely Lavagna

by rozehill

The village of Lavagna takes its name from the slate rock, in Ligurian called "Lavagna". Slate was formed in this area 70 million years ago in concurrence with the formation of the Alps.
Lavagna, a tourist town with magnificent beaches, was most probably founded in the 10th century and linked its history to the Earls of Fieschi, an important Genoese family, involved in a famous and unsuccessful conspiracy against the Doria family. The Fieschi increased their power thanks to trading. Lavagna and its surrounding villages owe this family the architectural monumental works, such as the Basilica of San Salvatore, in the municipality of Cogorno, a few kilometres from the hinterland.
The town represents the natural outlet for the market of slate, for which it has become famous for centuries. Due to the difficulties in transporting it, slate was initially used directly on site where it was extracted, but it began slowly to decorate the Ligurian hinterland with roofs, houses, stairs and various objects made with this black stone that time turns grey. Only towards the mid '800s, thanks to the construction of a road network, slate was transported below. Lavagna became, in this way, the port of loading of the slabs of stone that today reach the whole world.
Lavagna offers tourists a land rich of traditions, lovely bays, wonderful gorges, fabulous beaches, a mild weather, gentle seasons, and a beautiful landscape. And for boating lovers, Lavagna is known mainly as berthing. In a surface of 290.000 sq. m., Lavagna offers 1600 parking places for boats up to 50 metres in length; it is the biggest tourist port of the Mediterranean. It would be a pity if those who arrive from the sea stop here without going to the heart of the ancient town or without using the bathing and tourist facilities in Lavagna. A simple walk in Roma Street would be enough, for example, not to regret having taken some time on land. In the old houses of this charming street, there are many quaint shops that portray a particular charm that only the shopping in holiday places can offer. From a simple dive in the clear sea to a breathtaking paraglide, from canoeing to riding practised in the open spaces of the hinterland, from windsurfing to open-sea sailing: all this is possible at Lavagna and at its bathing resort.
