Zoagli, Liguria, Italy
Additional Location Information
A privileged place where to watch the spectacle of Tigullio gulf. Perhaps this definition may seem little effect. But, actually, Zoagli is just that: a nice place where you can quickly reach many other beautiful places like (Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, Camogli, le Cinque Terre). With a remarkable advantage: a palpable tranquility in Crose, the narrow streets that run between the parks of villas, including the ”bands” planted with olive trees. And even without leaving Zoagli, there are a thousand points of view, allowing glimpses of the horizon to embrace the look with the best views of Tigullio. And then, among the flowers and gardens,cypress and palm trees of the parks emanates the breath of the sea. Because here, the sea seems more present, more closely than elsewhere. His continuous dialogue with the rocks of the headlands and small bays is the background noise of a quiet holiday and full of large and small emotions.
A Zoagli you can make the best use of what in many other resorts has become a rare privilege, often contrasted: walking. That means enjoying one of the most healthy, simple, but basic pleasures that we can allow ourselves in our spare time.But walking, said Zoagli, is an understatement: it is to enter a dimension of total contact with nature more beautiful and “real”, that of the Mediterranean. Because the promenade that follows the coast is one of those places for which the adjective”romantic” is certainly neither excessive nor obvious. But the features intact and”mule” carrying on the surrounding hills can reveal genuine surprises, as the churches of San Pietro di Rovereto, S. Pantaleo, S. Ambrose.
The sea is a bit of Zoagli as his workshops: unexpected hidden treasures,whose discovery may hold true emotion. For those who love this sport diver is always a favorite destination of its depths. It is not just a particular beauty given by rocky ravines, the species of marine flora, rare and brilliant colors. In this privileged environment, aided by the happy flow of current is possible, indeed quite easy,take game drives of great interest and rarity.
Zoagli is a living center of the Riviera di Levante, located in the Gulf of Tigullio. The houses overlook a short stretch of sand, topped by arches of the railway viaduct open in a stretch of rocky coast.
Historically, the town was a Roman town of some importance: witness the existence of a pre-Roman castle ruins. In medieval times it was feud of the Fieschi of Lavagna. The country has followed the fortunes of the Republic of Genoa to give already the beginning of the eighth century, like all the resorts on the Riviera, was often put to the pirates. On either side of the town two towers sixteenth remember the days when it was necessary to defend themselves from the incursions of the Barbary pirates. During the Second World War, the country was devastated by bombing in 1943 that aimed to destroy the railway bridge that sets it apart.
