A few kilometres east of Imperia on the western Riviera is located Diano Marina. It lies in a position sheltered by hills covered with olive trees, which gently slope down to the sea. The town, mainly modern, stands between the railway line and a long and splendid fine sandy beach. In the hinterland stands Diano Castello, a medieval village which is still surrounded by its antique town walls.
A shore of intense beauty, sandy beaches surrounded by a vegetation in between the exotic and the Mediterranean, palm trees, agaves, maritime pines, citrus orchards, this is the Gulf of Diano, a large inlet between cape Berta and cape Cervo. Diano Marina is its barycenter, with its hotel structures, the important bathing establishments and well patronized nightclubs. The tourism vocation of Diano Marina was born with the rebuilding of the town after the 1887 earthquake that destroyed almost entirely the old seafaring village. On the promenade, after crossing over Via Aurelia, the palace of the Parco houses the civic museum that holds pre-Roman and Roman findings, and Napoleon and Risorgimento relics.
In between the railroad and the sports ground, there is the archaeological area that preserves the small church of palaeochristian origin, dedicated to Santi Nazario and Celso. An appointment that cannot be missed at Diano Marina is the "Infiorata del Corpus Domini", when the streets of the town are covered by fantastic and fragrant carpets of multicolored flower petals.
