Cervo is a small commune with a population of little more than a thousand. Access can only be gained on foot, and it should be noted that the climb to the top is not recommended for those with serious walking or breathing difficulties. However for those who can make it to th top the viws are stunning and the Church... More

Cervo is beautiful with narrow street and totally pedestrian. Do not miss the Coral Baroque Cathedral!

The village of Cervo is a medieval treasure that has not been spoiled by too much tourism. Wander the narrow alleys. At siesta time all is quiet. Views from the top out across the sea are beautiful. Church there is well worth a visit.

Walk through the 1-2 meter wide and very steep alleys and feel the history talking to you. Excellent views from several places including in the front of the church.

The town was full of walkways, alleys and steps to view the scenery. Even in the hot summer day, the ocean breeze was felt all through the area.

Enjoyed a walk from Diano Marino to Cervo (most of the walk by a nice promenade)... Seeing Cervo on the front of me all the time. Walking up by stairs isn't as bad as it looks when you see a town from the beach or road - my daughter counted 214 stairs... It is absolutely worth to visit, and to... More

A medieval gem with a musical heart, home to the Cervo International Chamber Music Festival for the last 50 years, the September Master Classes and a number of other art and music events throughout summer. Stunning architecture and views. Worth a visit and more ♥

You really do step back in time when you pass through the ancient gate into Cervo. As you enter the plaza, you see nearly all the commercial establishments - a bar, a gift shop, a restaurant and Osteria, and an interesting museum of life in Liguria. That is about it. The rest of the town is nearly untouched from hundreds... More

Great scenery and atmosphere. Walk up and down the tiny passages, each steps tells you a story of love for their territory. A majestic church where concert are given on its steps in the summer evening.
