The landing of the Saracens is the historical episode par exCelle townnce that marked this village. Every year, between the end of July and the beginning of August, Laigueglia commemorates this moment through a “battle” by the sea.

The 'Budello' alley

Second in fame, after the muretto, is the 'Budello', the non native name for the narrow alleyway that runs parallel to the sea. Elegance is the name that befits it, both for its numerous shops with prestigious brands and finely renovated, and for the palaces and small squares that suddenly open up. Between houses you can enjoy glimpses of the sea. Perpendicular to the Budello are the curious little alleys, known as 'esci' here, leading to the sea and the fishermen's houses. The waterfront is a succession of restaurants, bars and clubs full of buzz and where you can also enjoy live music.
