Cervo The Essential
The delightful village of Cervo, built in tiers on a promontory jutting out into the sea, has retained its caruggi - a maze of vaulted passages. The narrow lanes are covered by arches intended to prop up the buildings and reduce the risk in case of earthquakes. The Baroque San Giovanni Battista church stands on the lovely Piazza dei Corallini. Every year the church hosts the prestigious International Festival of Chamber Music.
