There was once a small Italian town called Seborga, surrounded by olive trees and mimosas, but known officially as “Sovereign Principality of Seborga.” The town currently occupies an area of 14 kilometers and its flag is blue and white. It is a little village in what we call the Flowers Riviera. The village self-proclaimed as independent, but this has not been recognized by Italy. It has its own currency, passport and license plates. This is not a joke or a commercial artifice, these people have organized and have rescued an old Templar principality whose writings were lost in time when Italy was unified in 1861.
After crossing the city Belle Époque of Bordighera, we will leave this place of dreams that can only be found in fairy tales. Then we will head toward the village of Dolceacqua, one of the most picturesque villages in the area, which in 1884 attracted Claude Monet, who painted the “Ponte Vecchio.” After entering through the medieval bridge over the River Nervia, we will climb the Doria Castle and walk on the cobblestone streets and taste some local wine, the rossese or some good olive oil.
Finally we come back though the coast, passing by Ventimiglia, located only 7 kilometers from the border with France, where we will have a coffee in the old town. We will head back through the mountains with fabulous views of Menton, Monaco, Eze and Saint Jean-Cap-Ferrat.
