This unspoilt hamlet boasts a small church, a bar, and idyllic alleyways amid stone-built houses, home of the famous explorer Thor Heyerdahl who did much to preserve it from ruin.

You can found Thor Heyerdal village at the end of a very nice walk starting in Laigueglia. Start it at 6pm, and have dinner at the restaurant.

The area of Liguria is a fantastic area for solo/single travellers....on the coast line there are several towns in walking reach that creates a dynamic environment, alongside with fantastic beaches. Its full of fascinating historic and crosscultural activites that makes the area an interesting spot to visit. Highly recommendable!
