Capo Cervo

Overview

Between sea, music and literature

If you are looking for a holiday that combines Liguria’s beautiful beaches with the attractions of a charming seaside village boasting an ancient history and a strong cultural tradition, then Cervo is the destination for you. Capo Cervo, on the western Ligurian Riviera, marks out the eastern border of the Gulf of Diano Marina, enclosed to the west by Capo Berta.

The village of Cervo stands nearby, perched on the promontory and overlooked by the Church of San Giovanni Battista or “dei Corallini”. At its feet are a myriad of colourful little houses: a palette of colours that paint a picture-perfect landscape. We recommend visiting the Oratory of Santa Caterina and the Clavesana Castle, which now houses the Ethnographic Museum.

You will never be bored in Cervo. Every year, the town’s squares and streets resound with the music of the Cervo Festival, the International Chamber Music Festival launched by Hungarian violinist Sandor Vegh. Meanwhile, literature enthusiasts are sure to enjoy Cervo Ti Strega, which for two evenings between June and July transforms the town into a cultural hub, attracting bookworms from all over Italy. You can sit and listen to interviews and readings, perhaps sipping a glass of Vermentino, a local white wine.
