The province of Savona is located in the northern Italian region of Liguria. Some towns are on the sea and are characterized by low, sandy beaches that attract scores of tourists each year. The province is also characterized by a number of historical monuments and museums. For example, the capital city of the province, also called Savona, houses the only other existing Sistine Chapel outside Rome; it was created by order of Pope Sixtus IV as a monument in which to bury his parents. The capital also houses a number of castles, built in the 15th and 16th centuries, as well as medieval towers that have become the symbol of Savona. Head out of the main city to visit the historical monuments present in the other towns of the province, such as in Finale Ligure; sights here include the Church of Sant’Eusebio, constructed in the Middle Ages, which contains an impressive crypt dating to the 11th century, and various caves previously inhabited. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in a typical Ligurian experience for a weekend, Savona could be just the place for you.
