Just 15 minutes from Hotel Bristol Palace we find the village of Boccadasse, famous for being one of the most romantic and charming place in our region and the ideal destination for a trip out of town for Valentine's Day. The small town is located directly on the sea and protected by a beautiful inlet. The houses stand out with their pastel colours and the sea breeze carries the scent of maritime pines all along the coast.
Boccadasse owes its name to the lines that form its inlet, which resemble the shape of a donkey's mouth (bocca d'ase in Genoese dialect). Legend has it that the first inhabitants of the area were Spanish sailors who, at the mercy of a storm, took advantage of the inlet to protect themselves from the sea.
A romantic destination for Valentine's Day:
