You can not miss to visit Apricale, a medieval village perched on a hill, which hosts one of the most fascinating squares in Italy, with the parish church, the oratory, and a series of buildings all different from each other, enriched by murals, sculptures and paintings by numerous artists who have left their works in this place, even in recent times.
Certainly the most curious work is the bicycle on the roof of the bell tower, visible even from a distance. The tour will be led by an expert guide.

Day 3: Seborga
Breakfast at the hotel and luggage accommodation. In the morning transfer to the small town of Seborga which rises on the first Ligurian mountains, between the municipalities of Ospedaletti and Bordighera, less than 50 kilometers from Imperia.
Seborga is a typical Ligurian hinterland village, perched on the little space that this land grants. Famous for being the seat of the Principality of Seborga (which is neither recognized internationally nor by the Italian State which maintains political control), it has a Prince, a Council of the Crown, a Guard Corps of the Principality and also its own currency, “the luigino”, which can be used in its commercial establishments and which has a value comparable to about 6 dollars. These organisms, although not having legal value, create a very particular and interesting atmosphere in the small town. In the morning, free visit of the village.
Then transfer to Imperia and free visit to the Carli Oil Museum (Audio guide supplement € 3.00 p.p.). Lunch at the expense of the participants and departure for the return.
