Santa Margherita Ligure town

A place of enchantment, where anything is possible - even encountering Zarathustra, as author Frederich Nietzsche says happened. The pearl of Tigullio is offered with its historic centre - the cathedral and its piazza in “risseu” stone. Then there are the historic churches and the shopping in elegant stores. It was here that Gabriele D'Annunzio and Eleonora Duse fell in love.
