Lavagna is the main seaside and tourist-favorite place, due to the courtesy of its fantastic sand beach occupying an area of many kilometers. Not only that, but you can also relish yourself in the amazing tourist ports of Tigullio and Liguria, as well as visit historical monuments with a very important background. The center is crossed by the Carruggio, which opens up to Piazza Marconi, enriched by Santo Stefano Basilica, while the Via Roma is a commercial hub of Lavagna with traditional streets and medieval-style gates.

Another name of gorgeousness is the province of Spezia which is filled with beaches that combine mesmerizing transparent water with fabulous landscapes, whereas its rural life has built-in lush valleys with renowned ancient symbols.
