As the green hills dive into the waves, Varazze‘s most frequent guest, the sun, presides over the famed Blue Flag beach, warming the sand as the terse waters sparkle. The town’s historic centre, with its dizzying blend of Romanesque, Baroque and medieval, invites visitors to wander through its picturesque maze of narrow and partly enclosed alleyways – the carrugi. Inland, the Beigua protected area offers a striking natural setting where prehistoric engravings peak through the foliage, while the long stretch of white sand entices from below. A promenade that extends along the coast, through pines, oleanders and palm trees, is ideal for a pleasant stroll with children, a morning jog or a scenic bike ride.
