Close to the village (15 minutes walking distance) you will visit a Chinotto (citrus) plantation: you’ll discover one of the most rare and precious citrus found in nature, the Chinotto, a bitter orange that grows just in this area of the Italian Riviera and has a long history. It is under the wings of the Slow Food Presidia and few producers in the area transform it in delicious jam, candied and liquors, following ancient recipes.
