The Riviera Ligure situated between the blue sea and the green mountains
is a rich region full of historical villages interesting to visit.
We are right in the middle of the “Whales’ Sanctuary”
and a boat excursion of Whale watching is possible.
Not far from Ceriale there are many pleasant localities
to be visited both on the coast and inland:
Albenga km 4 With its characteristic towers and an antique historical centre.
