Bolano is located directly behind the La Spezia, on the border of Liguria and Tuscany. Bolano is a place at the top of a hill. From there you can see the rivers Vara and Magra which unite together shortly before the Ceparana in the plain. The view of Bolano is one of the major attractions of the city. The tourist altitude trail, which runs through the Ligurian Alps to Tuscany, is well-known in Bolano.
Bolano has got a great number of constructions that date back to the Middle Ages. The small city sticks to the slopes like a beehive. It is not recommended at all to try driving through the winding streets of Bolano in a large car. A highlight of this place is the church of Santa Maria Assunta which stands among the top attractions of Bolano. Don't forget to pay your attention to the Malaspina castle. In any case it should be visited while in Bolano. The city gates of Bolano from the 13th century and the oratory where precious paintings and sculptures are exhibited are also worth a visit.
