As you walk through the historical center, one of the sights you will see is the wonderful Basilica of St. Maria Assunta which houses numerous works by Ligurian artists.
Before re-joining your coach, you will have free time on your own to stroll along the harbor and boardwalk or perhaps visit the colorful shops and cafes while enjoying a delicious ice cream.
