Vi brukte dagen til å bli kjent i Diano Marina

Hotel Villa Marina

Diano Marina (Ligurian: A Maina de Dian,
or simply Dian) is a comune (municipality) in
the Province of Imperia in the Italian region
of Liguria, located about 90 kilometres (56 mi)
southwest of Genoa and about 5 kilometres
(3.1 mi) northeast of Imperia.

Diano Marina is one of the few municipalities
along the Ligurian coast with long sandy
beaches. The beach season is from
May 15 until September 15.
Outside of this season, most of the beaches are
accessible to the public. It is also known for its

streets lined with orange trees, and is referred
to as the "Citta degli aranci"
(City of the orange trees).

The origin of Diano Marina dates back to the
Upper Paleolithic era and the Iron Age.
Various discoveries have been made in the
area, such as cinerary urns belonging to a
necropolis, thus supporting the theory of a
probable prehistoric origin of the village.
The first permanent settlement, inhabited
by Ingauni Ligurian, dates back to the
Bronze Age.  (17. mars 2020)

Dolceacqua is a lovely village nestled in the hills of
Val Nervia, and is one of the gems of the Italian
Riviera, just minutes from the sea and the nearby
French Riviera.

Claude Monet,who in 1884 stayed in nearby Bordighera,
went inland and in addition to the natural wonders of
the coast, was enchanted by the village of Dolceacqua.

The Impressionist Painter drew the view of the village,
the Castle of the Roman bridge of Dolceacqua and in his
letters he wrote fascinated:

“… the place is superb, there is a bridge that is a jewel of lightness …”

Today the medieval village of Dolceacqua is still identical to how Claude Monet painted it in the late 1800s.

Spasertur til Cervo
Krydderutsalg i

Cervo is a small, ancient town and comune, built on top
of a hill along the Italian Riviera in the province of
Imperia, 1,200 inhabitants,_Liguria




Magnus i Cervo

Cervo is a pretty village on the Italian Riviera coast of Liguria in north-west Italy - known here as the Riviera di Ponente - to the south of Albenga and north-east of Imperia. It has both a beach area and also a medieval village on the hill behind.
The village has a very long history: more than 2000 years ago, in the second century BC, the Romans established a stopping place here on the Via Aurelia, at that time an important trade route leading to France and Spain. Cervo then acted as a shelter for pilgrims in the middle ages and is now a popular destination among 21st century travellers.

Grete på den rød løperen, kjent fra filmfestivalen i Cannes.

By the 2nd century BC, the Ligurian Oxybii established
a settlement here known as Aegitna (Ancient Greek:
Αἴγιτνα).   Historians are unsure what the
name means.
The area was a fishing village used as a port of
call between the Lérins Islands.

In 69 AD, it became the scene of violent conflict
between the troops of Otho and Vitellius.

In the 10th century, the town was known as Canua.
The name may derive from "canna", a reed. Canua was probably the site of a small Ligurian port, and later a
Roman outpost on Le Suquet hill, suggested by
Roman tombs discovered here. Le Suquet housed an 11th-century tower, which overlooked swamps where
the city now stands. Most of the ancient activity,
especially protection, was on the Lérins Islands,
and the history of Cannes is closely tied to the
history of the islands.

In the 20th century, new luxury hotels such as the Carlton, Majestic, Martinez, and JW Marriott
Cannes were built.
The city was modernised with a sports centre,
a post office, and schools.
There were fewer British and German tourists
after the First World War, but more Americans.
Winter tourism gave way to summer tourism,
and the summer casino at the Palm Beach was
constructed.  (19. mars 2020)

Med båt til San Remo.

Vi tok buss tilbake til Diana Marina
Sanremo or San Remo (Italian: [sanˈrɛːmo]; Ligurian: Sanrému, locally Sanrœmu) is a city and comune on the Mediterranean coast of Liguria, in northwestern
Founded in Roman times, it has a population of
55,000, and is known as a tourist destination on the Italian Riviera.
It hosts numerous cultural events, such as the
Sanremo Music Festival
and the Milan–San Remo cycling classic.

The name of the city is a phonetic contraction of
Sant'Eremo di San Romolo, which refers to
Romulus of Genoa, the successor to Syrus of Genoa.

It is often stated in modern folk stories that Sanremo
is a translation of "Saint Remus", a deceased Saint.
In Ligurian, his name is San Rœmu.
The spelling San Remo is on all ancient maps of
Liguria, the ancient Republic of Genoa, Italy in
the Middle Ages, the Kingdom of Sardinia, and the
Kingdom of Italy. It was used in 1924 in official
documents under Mussolini. This form of the name
appears still on some road signs and, more rarely, in
unofficial tourist information. It has been the most
widely used form of the name in English at least since
the 19th century.   (19. mars 2020)
