Imperia Guide

Imperia is the provincial capital of Riviera di Ponente, also called "Riviera dei fiori". Born as an industrial city and today converted into a tourist town, Imperia offers its visitors breathtaking panoramic views and a wide variety of attractions for every type of need.

 

In Imperia you can live extraordinary moments between the sea and the sky, where every day the sun is a show that repeats itself.

Open air, sea, sports, food and wine.

Imperia is the art of fine italian living.

 

Currently Imperia has about 43,000 inhabitants.

The territory has a series of valleys and hills covered with olive groves and dotted with numerous small villages.

The coast has beaches with pebbles on Oneglia, Borgo Prino and Borgo Foce. While at Borgo Marina in Porto Maurizio there is a fine sandy beach called "Spiaggia d'Oro" (Golden Beach).

 

Imperia, a town with two centers

Imperia owes its name to the "Impero" torrent that separates Oneglia from Porto Maurizio once rivals cities.

Porto Maurizio, perched on the promontory of Parasio, was a major economic and commercial center already in the Middle Ages, and is now the touristic reference.

 

Oneglia, extending over the plain at the mouth of the Impero was founded after year 1000 AD, is becoming in the present days the commercial section of the town.

 

The tourist visiting Imperia is often surprised because in this town everything is double: there are two historic centers, two markets, two ports.
