Cruises from Savona depart year-round.
Southwest of Genoa on the Italian Riviera sits Savona, a scenic seaport in the Liguria region. Though the commune’s roots reach back more than 2,000 years, today Savona blends historic structures with modern attractions and relaxing stretches of beach. Among popular sites that have withstood the test time are the imposing Priamar Fortress, erected in the 16th century, and Savona’s own Sistine Chapel, a small but beautiful space constructed by Pope Sixtus IV in the late 1400s and decorated with elaborate frescoes in the early 1800s. Consider a culinary tour from this port to discover a regional dish like the farinata, a chickpea pancake, and to savor locally sourced ingredients like Ligurian olive oil. Savona also is a jumping-off point for excursions such as driving tours to opulent Monte Carlo and the storied coastal villages of Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
