When I search for off the beaten path towns in Liguria, I usually leave the sea behind and wander (with a driver or a car) into the hills and mountains of Liguria.

The trees were everywhere, and the people were thriving from their sale and uses of the oil. In the 1700s, 360 people lived in Valloria. In the mid-20th Century, there were only 30 remaining residents ..read more
