Diano Marina: the perfect holiday all year round

In plain crossed by the River San Pietro, which settlements go back to the Iron Age, there is the "lucus Bormani", a forest sacred to the god of water Borman, which became an important stop-station during Roman age along the Via Julia Augusta. In the Middle Age the attacks of Saracens led people to retreat on the hills, but since the thirteenth century Diano grew and became particularly important for olive oil trade through the sea.

The earthquake that destroyed the centre in 1887 was followed by the reconstruction, which gave Diano Marina the typical look of a 1800 Riviera seaside town. The parish of Sant'Antonio Abate on Via Aurelia dates 1862: the marble altars are Seventeenth century and are placed inside the neoclassical area next frescoes and paintings by characteristic Liguria School, including "Death of St. Joseph" (Morte di San Giuseppe) by Luca Cambiaso.

Among pre-Roman, Roman (including amphorae and vases of a ship sank in front of the coast) , Napoleonic Age and Risorgimento archaeological finds, the museum tells the story of Diano Marina round the centuries. From the reconstruction, tourism is the undisputed vocation of the town that offers sandy beaches surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation.

The clubs, the tourist port and the possibility of having sport - from the most traditional activities to scuba diving, go-karting, bowling and miniature golf - make Diano Marina the heart of Dianese Gulf. A boat that touches the most important places of the Riviera dei Fiori brings whale-watching fans to admire whales in open sea.

For the sacred feasts of Corpus Domini, between May and June, Diano Marina organizes the Infiorata: the streets of the town are covered with drawings made with flowers.
