Varese Ligure:
Another Hidden Gem of Liguria

Old Photo of Varese

Find yourself 30 minutes inland from the Mediterranean sea (and Sestri Levante) and you will find Italy’s “organic valley” and the charming village of Varese Ligure. My pal, Kate at LittleParadiso, took me on a “field trip” to visit this beautiful area, celebrate my birthday with a typical and delicious Ligurian lunch and pick up a few “biological” products along the way. Knowing that Kate is going to write a fabulous blog on Varese, I’ll just post a few photos from our day to give you an idea...

A village full of color...

Skinniest home I've ever seen!

The Fortress

More & more Ligurian colors...

Medieval Walkways

Hidden Passageways

La Madonna in Sassi

The Cathedral

Last but not least...
Crepes of chestnut flour and pesto!
