Diano Marina, being a modern and renowned tourist seaside town, has new treasures to discover. They are hidden behind the scene of its long flower carpeted seaside promenade, behind its elegant and comfortable, behind its wide clean sandy beaches, its tourist port, locals, shops and restaurants.

History tells us that right in the plane of Dianese Gulf, was the passage of the most important Roman road to France and Provence, the Via Julia Augusta, built in year 13 B.C. under the Roman Emperor Ottaviano Augustus.

After the earthquake in 1887, Diano Marina was rebuilt as a modern town; many discoveries of iron age, Roman, and medieval, was found. In the Town Hall we can admire the “dolia”, big terracotta jars used to transport wine, by sea, from Spain to Italy; they were found together with the rests of a Roman ship, sunk in the first century A.D. a few kms. away from the coast of Diano Marina.

Villa Ardissone, the residence known as “Palazzo del Parco”, hosts the Civic Museum (with many archaeological discoveries and historical memories of Andrea Rossi, born in Diano Marina and pilot of the ship expedition: “Mille”, the thousand soldiers of Giuseppe Garibaldi), the Civic Library and a room for exhibitors.
