Description

Tellaro is listed as one of the most beautiful little villages in Italy. The endlessly charming town is part of the Gulf of Poets; it's known mostly for its beautiful church and sunsets, and enchanting legends that nowadays still define the tourism of this unique place. The old town is rich in beautiful coloured tower houses and infamous Ligurian narrow alleys known as “carobi”. We will start the tour from a panoramic terrace that overlooks the roofs of the coloured tower houses of Tellaro and gives us a glimpse of the beautiful town. We will then reach the charming central square and see the beautiful church of Stella Maris. Passing through the centre, we will meet several shops where it may be possible to observe several local products, from local oil productions to focaccia and pesto. We will then go downtown, passing through the incredible passages among the historical coloured tower houses known as “carobi” or “carugi” in order to reach one of the most magical corners of the town, the historical oratory of Saint Mary in Selàa with so much history to be told and a breathtaking sight on the coastline that separates the region Liguria from the region Tuscany. In the upper hills, the beautiful vision of the natural park of Montemarcello can also be seen. We will soon go towards the most ancient part of the town where the dock and the traditional fishermen's boats are, from there we will see an unforgettable view of the Saint George church, painted in an iconic and charming pink, and here we will have the time to talk about the tale of the octopus saving the town of Tellaro from pirates! A myth, a fairy tale that still defines this town's traditions, style and tourism. We will end our tour on a wonderful terrace where it's possible to see Tellaro in a beautiful postcard and look at the bay of Fiascherino and Maralunga. We will be eternally fascinated by the dreamy style of this little town that, rightfully so, is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
