I couldn't work out why such a small town needed such a big wall - to keep out the Genoese. But it's created a fascinating place with marvellous architecture, not least Basilica San Biagio with its bizarre sculpted pulpit based on Ezekiel's vision of "wheels...More

Finalborgo is one of the most beautiful towns in Italy and is well worth a visit if you are in the area. It was an easy 20 minute walk from Finale Ligure. Wander the medieval alley ways to discover this stunning town, but remember that...More

the Borgo di Finale, electro among the most beautiful villages in Italy, really deserves a visit. Especially in the evening, when it seems to take a step in the Middle Ages, but trea restaurants and bars always ready to serve the customer

We did an excursion to this fantastic small medieval town. Tremendous personality, charm and history within its small walled perimeter. Great fresh focaccia bakery as you enter from the main entrance. The church and walk up toward the ruins of the castle are great as...More

This is definitely worth a visit if you are staying in the area. It is lively in the evenings with lots of restaurants and bars. It is possible to walk from Finale Ligure but there is also a bus service.

A short walk (1 km) or bus ride from Finale Marina, Finalborgo in July was quiet and beautiful. Small piazzas, artisan shops and just a beautiful vibe for wandering. Lunch at I Torchietti was so good, we went back a second time!
