Villaggio dei Fiori, the campsite and holiday village in Sanremo, Liguria, is an island of scents and colours where life unfolds in harmony with the landscape. The Villagio dei Fiori in Sanremo is the ideal starting point for enjoying entertainment in neighbouring towns and nature in the picturesque hinterland region.
A land full of colours, sea, sunshine, nature and flowers. Liguria extends from the 15 km Cinque Terre coast via Genua to the palm tree riviera and flower riviera.
he Italian Riviera borders onto France and is home to the highest mountain - the Monte Saccarrello (2,201 m high).
the local sea dwellers include the second biggest whale in the world, the fin whale; sperm whales and dolphins can also be found here and viewed in their natural habitat during the summer months.
the flower riviera was discovered by the European aristocracy in the 19th century. The coast was and remains a natural health resort. The vegetation of the flower riviera area is fascinating and beautiful thanks to the mild climate. Endless palm trees, rubber trees and numerous subtropical plants have acclimatised to living here.
San Remo is located nearby and has lots of style. The hinterland region is home to lots of beautiful mediaeval villages such as Dolceacqua which achieved worldwide fame thanks to Claude Monet who painted a magnificent picture of it. Visiting Monaco, Apricale and Agay is also a must. The palm tree riviera contains various picturesque coastal villages such as Alassio and Laigueglia. Fantastic sandy beaches can also be found in Finale Ligure. The typical alleyways (caruggi) form the second biggest old town in Italy: Genoa, the town of Christopher Colombo. Genoa was once the richest town in Europe and has a great deal to offer: from the aquarium to the region’s magnificent palaces and buildings, especially on the Via Garibaldi. Via Portofino, Rapallo and Sestri Levante (in the latter, the wonderful ‘Baia del Silenzio’ or Bay of Silence is not to be missed), you can reach a 15 km world-renowned stretch of coast: Cinque Terre. 5 villages here have been accorded UNESCO World Heritage Site status. The way to tourism is through the stomach… and the traditional dishes here certainly offer plenty of diversity. Whether fish, meat or vegetable dishes – there is a wine to suit every meal. You cannot fail to be impressed!
