look down as you drive on the motorway from the north, or as you're getting there by train. What a scenic landscape! You'll never forget dramatic slopes storming down to the ever-blue Ligurian Sea, with slender colourful houses perched all over them.
Fondest memory: Sitting in the garden of a villa in the nearby Chiavari with my friends Andrea and Paolo. I could stay in that sunset forever!
Other fond memories: Paolo's foccacia and beer in the docks.
Favorite thing: IMPERIA is the town I know best in Liguria. I spent 10 lovely days there. Porto Maurizio that you can see in the distance is a medieval area that contains civil and religious buildings of different ages, among others the Collegiata of S.Maurizio, the biggest church in Liguria.
