PORTO MAURIZIO & PARASIO – The colours and the perfumes of a real Ligurian village
Duration: 4 hours
The Ligurian aspect is much more evident in Porto Maurizio, which has always been, a fact which is well demonstrated by its narrow streets and the houses painted in bright tones.
The historical centre of Porto Maurizio is the Parasio hill, perched on high like a true Ligurian village. Pink, yellow, light green, together with the typical colors of the local stones, are set like gems between the crystalline blue sea and the sky.
Enjoy a stroll in this enchanting village full of charm. It is a sort of treasure hunt, strolling past old palazzos belonging to local families since generations, small painted houses, hidden courtyards, and beautiful squares.
Exploring the hillside on foot, visitors come across the Pagliari Palace, the Convent of Santa Chiara with its majestic portico and panoramic sea view, the evocative church of San Pietro and the magnificent neo-classical cathedral of San Maurizio.
We can organize the guided tour of the village, and we can also climb the cathedral’s bell tower, walking on hundreds of ancient steps, and then enjoying the best view on the village and on the sea. This is an unforgettable experience!
Guided tour of the village, led by licensed tourist guide.
