[nggallery id=1040]Arriving in Savona you will be captured by the imposing fortress “Priamar”, a 16th centuary complex built as a military presidium from Genoa Republic that today is an important culture centre for the city. With our local tour guide you will have the opportunity to visit this great fortress situated between the sea and the old-town centre. Giuseppe Mazzini was imprisoned there were he elaborated the ideas about the Italian unification.

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 colour 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.

(On request in the historical centre of Savona you can visit the art gallery “pinacoteca civica”).
