Loano is situated on the coast, and is protected by the mountains, so it has a particularly pleasant climatic situation.
The ancient medieval village with the Doria Castle dominates on the town, that develops mostly along the coast. The historical center is very picturesque, with the small squares and the typical alleys of Liguria, full of history and of imposing buildings, often decorated with frescoes and friezes, and shops where you can buy typical products.
The city has an immense beach, a seaside-walk with palms and gardens and a equipped touristic port. Moreover, above all in the summer, Loano offers to the tourists a rich calendar, with festivals of culture and entertainment.
The beach, more than two kilometers, is magnificent: it is formed by sand and gravel. An artificial barrier protects the marine fauna and flora: here the panorama on the sea is one among the most evocative of the Coast.
