Lavagna e dintorni
Albergo Stella di Mare is by the Marina Porto Touristico di Lavagna 500 mts from the beaches and close by centre town.
Staring from Lavagna you can visit the Eastern Riviera (Camogli, San Fruttuoso, Portofino, Cinque Terre and Portovenere) or you can easily reach Genova, European Capital of Culture 2004, with his historical center (the largest in Europe), the palaces, the cosy little shops, the hands in Children Town Science Museum, the Old Harbor and the Aquarium.
If the weather is not so good to lay on the beach, you can always take a trip to the country side, where you can have a nice meal at typical “Trattoria”, visit the Slate Valley, go hiking or biking in the woods and horse back riding.
The first two weeks of August the streets of Lavagna light up with a Medieval fair: it's the famous Torta dei Fieschi. People dress up with typical costumes, arches and sward tourneys take place. It all ends on August 14th when in the evening takes place the Noble Wedding and a slice of a Big Cake is offered to the about 20.000 visitors.
