Cervo (pic n°4), a small village, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and best-preserved Medieval villages in Italy.

The most remarkable monument of Cervo is its Baroque-style church dedicated to St. John the Baptist, known as "Chiesa dei Corallini".
San Remo (pic n°5) is a well-known elegant seaside resort, probably the most popular town along the whole coast. It is located in a cove overlooking the Ligurian Sea, away from the mountains, which allows it to benefit from a mild climate even in winter.

San Remo is home to the most famous Italian music festival called "Italian Song Festival, San Remo", which is held here every year in February or March. It is a competition for Italian singers and where many international guest singers are invited as well.
San Remo is also famous for its beautiful flowers. In fact, most of the surrounding areas are dedicated to growing flowers, so it the most important activity of the city in addition to tourism.
