Today we will travel to the area close to Savona to visit the gorgeous Villa Faraggiana. The rose-colored Palace was built in the late Baroque style. The lawns of the Palace are enriched by intermittent flower-beds and the central pond is surrounded by lemon trees, magnolias and hibiscus as well as remarkable species of Sophora Janponica. We then continue to Arenzano where we will visit Villa Negrotto Cambiano. The original owner, Marchese Pallavicini wanted a variety of botanical plants for his garden, that can still be admired today. The greenhouse built with glass and iron in Art Nouveau style which was opened in 1931 is quite remarkable.
