Dolceacqua

Not far from across the border with France

This little village is in the Italian region called Liguria, and is a few kilometres away from the coast. The 33 metre bridge was constructed in the 15th Century, and it’s by the Oldest part of the town, which is also the most interesting one.
Nearby you can find the gardens of Hanbury, on the Cape of Mortola, that dates back to 1867 when the two Englishmen Thomas and David Hanbury create the first private botanical garden of the Riviera. The garden measures 18 hectares, and is notably known for its 7000 different species of cacti, citrus trees, rose gardens and Chinese gardens. All in all, a magnificent place to visit if you happen to be in Dolceacqua – which means “sweet water” in Italian.
