Diano Marina is a beautiful city on the western Riviera of Liguria region, in the province of Imperia. The village lies in the middle of the inlet between cape Cervo and cape Berta, at the mouth of the San Pietro river. At its shoulders there are hills covered with olive trees, which slowly slope towards the sea. Here lies a long beach of fine sand. This small gulf is characterized by a sea of extraordinary beauty and by a landscape almost exotic, thanks to a lush vegetation made of palms, citrus and pine.
This area was already inhabited in prehistoric times but were the Romans to found the first conurbation. The name of Diano has origin in this period, in honour to the god of hunting. Of the roman presence remain the rests of some buildings and the wreck of a cargo ship found a few miles from the coast. In medieval times the frequent attacks by pirates forced the people to move inland, giving rise to Diano Castello. Unfortunately, in 1887 a violent earthquake completely destroyed the ancient seaside village.
Nowaday Diano Marina is a modern seaside resort, with excellent hotels, many lidos and popular clubs. The promenade Trieste, whose sides there are beautiful gardens with palm trees, is ideal for walks. The Palace of Park, in the centre of town, houses the Civic Musem, with archaeological finds of Roman age. The fraction of Diano Castello, situated inland on a hill overlooking the coast, still keeps the aspect of medieval village. Of interest are the Romanesque church of Assunta and the parish church of St. Nicholas, in baroque style.
