Not far away from Savona and its Priamar, you will continue the visit to Albisola village.

This little town is appreciated as a holiday resort, and for its ceramics and majolica.

The Albisola ceramic is famous, above all, for its lovely characteristic color white and blue, known as “Antico Savona”.

After a short walking along the “Artists Sea Promenade” (a unique opera in Europe), you will enter a ceramics craft shop and you will see how the traditional forms and decorations are created.
