The history

A leap into the past

Just a few steps from where the Italian border meets the French Riviera, picture pink cliffs with magnificent caves overlooking the sea, where, thousands of years ago our Stone Age forefathers lived, giving us the name to one of the most fascinating locations on the Italian Riviera: Balzi Rossi.

Besides having one of the most important archaeological sites in the western Mediterranean, here in Balzi Rossi there are other stones to talk about: perfectly rounded pebbles, meticulously polished by the soft Mediterranean sea of Spiaggetta dei Balzi Rossi.

In a delightful natural setting, a small gem of rare beauty, which is today a meeting place for artists, writers and famous people.

The unique panorama of the red cliffs, the turquoise sea and the gentle aroma of sea salt and jasmine, will transport you from everyday life, to a simpler time in a magical place!
