A village ideally located between Imperia and San Lorenzo, is set amongst lush olive groves overlooking a magnificent seascape.

Its origins are deeply rooted in legend, which speaks of noble Venetian families settling in the village and building the beautiful church of San Marco to appear like the bow of a gondola about to set sail.

Another distinctive monument is the Torre degli Svizzeri, appearing like the stern of the imaginary boat that is Civezza itself.
