Savona Guide

The provincial Italian town of Savona is one of northern Italy's major sea ports and set amongst the scenery of the Liguria region, it is more than just an industrial and port town. Savona lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast around 25 miles to the west of Genoa and 93 miles to the east of Nice in France. For those visitors who choose to explore the town will find a medieval fortress, art galleries and cathedrals that sit alongside brightly coloured coastal homes. Although the city seems to attract fewer tourists than some of its Mediterranean neighbours it is easily reached by road, train and ferry. This town’s coastal location helped it develop into an important port city whose harbour serves as the areas main industrial hub for automobile exports. Multiple ferries and Mediterranean cruise ships also frequently depart from Savona’s harbour.

In the town, the 16th century Fortezza Priamar overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and was constructed by Genoese workers to demonstrate their dominance over the Savonese which they had just defeated in battle. Another well preserved 16th century building in the town is the Cattedrale di Nostra Signora Assunta which was constructed to replace the 13the century Church of St. Francis, which was falling apart.
