Savona is an Italian place in the region of Liguria, and also the capital of the province of Savona. Savona has more than 60,000 inhabitants. The city has a major port and the residents are mainly working here or in the neighboring industry. The port makes this place very important as there are ferries to Corsica and a good possibility for the tourists to come here. Beautiful accommodations and various vacation homes are offered in the area. Those who want a quiet vacation will never regret having come here.
The city of the Italian Riviera, the third largest city in Liguria, had already been settled long time ago. Later the Romans founded an important trade center here. Because of the competition with Genoa there were often conflicts which usually ended up with the destruction of the town’s port by the Genoese people. But still the port has a great significance for Italy as such motoring giants like Lancia and Fiat from nearby Turin ship their products to other countries of the world through this port.
Being here at least for a little time you can go sightseeing around the town. There is also a very beautiful tower at the port named after a well-known sailor Pancaldo. There is San Giovanni Battista church with middle and aisle from the 16th century which offer a special interest for the tourists interested in architecture. They are also welcome to visit the cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. Finally, there is an art gallery which is located in Palazzo Pozzobonello. In any case you will be rewarded by the sights of Savona and your prize would be just great experience!
