Among the most beautiful
villages in Italy
A small, charming district, bordered on one side by the town of Borgio, on another side by the coast (location of the Valdemino grottas) and an another by the town of Verezzi. This hillside district enjoys stunning panoramic views. This is the place, looking out to sea from the enchanting Piazza Sant'Agostino - renowed as the "most thatrical square in Italy" - that every year the last thirty-plus years had played hast to a summer theatre season.
Borgio Verezzi is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Savona in the Italian region Liguria, located about 60 km southwest of Genoa and about 20 km southwest of Savona. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 2,330 and an area of 2.9 km².

Borgio Verezzi borders the following municipalities: Finale Ligure, Pietra Ligure, and Tovo San Giacomo.
Wonderful Villa Gloria Borgio Verezzi
The caves in Borgio are well worth a visit, interesting tour. We found the train station really handy for to/from airport and visiting other local beaches in Alassio, Pietra Ligure and Finale Ligure (without need for a rental car).
