Imperia offers you a very special offer (get 2 at the price of 1!): Oneglia and Porto Maurizio. Two harbours, two historical centers and two different aspects of the same city.

It is simply brilliant, and due to this region you definitely have to visit it, even for just a weekend or a couple of days.

Visit the old village of Porto Maurizio, then go to the Cathedral of Saint Maurice (San Maurizio in Italian), since it is the largest Ligurian church.

Castellina in Chianti, located in the heart of the Chianti region, as the name suggests, is a nice but small town in Tuscany, very famous for its historical past during which the place was lived by the Etruscans.

Situated in a strategic position, halfway between Val d’Elsa, Val di Pesa and the Arbia valley, Castellina hosts numerous old monuments and historical finds, remembering not only the notable importance of the Etruscan civilisation, but also the medieval time, in which the ancient walls around the town were built. Nowadays, unfortunately, they can’t be seen anymore, since they are almost completely demolished, apart from a small section underground.
