This village was another great example of the classic hilltop coastal villages along the Italian Riviera. There were brightly painted buildings clinging to rocks, a fortress, huge churches and incredible views of the sea and mountains. Be sure to explore the narrow walking streets all...More

We drove here and had to park at the top of the hill as no cars were allowed lower. Lovely little town with excellent seafood restaurants and lots of lemon souvenirs. Came in October and want to come back and see the other four towns.
