      About This Sanremo Tour

      Dolceacqua, a medieval town rising up the Ligurian hillside, is really two villages in one. At its heart is the ancient "Terra," joined to the 19th century "Borgo" by a medieval stone bridge.

      Towering above it all is Doria Castle, which dates back to the 12th century. The expansion of this ancient castle began a century later, when it was purchased by Oberto Doria, the founder of the dynasty that once dominated the Republic of Genoa. Today, little remains beyond its exterior shell, but for the sense of historical perspective you'll gain, it's worth the climb to the top of the hill.

      French artist Claude Monet first visited Dolceaqua in 1884. He was so enchanted by the village that he dedicated four of his works to capturing the beauty of its bridge and castle. In fact, he called the ancient bridge connecting the two halves of the village "a jewel of lightness" in his later writings. As you stroll the streets of Dolceaqua, you'll find two panels that hold reproductions of two of his paintings at each end of the bridge he loved – in the exact spots where his easel once stood.

      He sold a city to save his castle

      Doria Castle came under attack many times during its history, from the Grimaldis of Monaco and the King of Naples, among others. To gain protection for his ancestral home, Bartolomeo Doria transferred his feudal rights to Dolceacqua to Duke Charles III of the House of Savoy in 1526. Still, 200 years later, the castle came under attack during the War of Succession, ultimately being conquered by French and Spanish troops.
