In the Middle Ages, Varazze was disputed between Savona and Genoa for its ship productions, but in 1227 it became an independent commune, then being sold to the Republic of Genoa.
Since ancient times it was called the city of Varazze, which brings us to the long history of boatbuilding. Its territory, with suitable beaches and forests on the hill overlooking the coast, with excellent wood, allowed the growth of leading shipyards that made the famous Varazze worldwide. A medieval village where you can enjoy the sea, the beaches, the views and routes that make it ideal in summer and winter, to practice outdoor sports such as sailing, diving, hiking, cycling and surfing, being recognized as having some of the most better waves of the Mediterranean.
The so-called Europ Walk ("Europa Stroll") is a naturalistic route that runs on the former Genoa-Ventimiglia railway (closed in 1970), which connects Varazze with Cogoleto. It passes through the rocky landscape of the Maquis shrub, including the Aleppo pine vegetation, and overlooks a number of small harbors that harbor wildlife.
We can also observe remnants of the medieval walls.
The beach "Bagni Pinuccia" is one of the oldest beaches in Liguria, founded in 1890 by Antonio Piazza. It is the first beach you meet along the coast, after the new "Marina di Varazze", being completely renovated in 2008, with a new and modern look, with a note of the past and the beautiful nature around it.
Other well-known beaches are: Bagni Jolanda, San Domenico Beach, Stella Stella, Baia del Corvo, Nautilus Beach, Torretti, Bagni alla Mola Varazze, Bagni Santa Caterina, Bagni Diana, Bagni Milano Lido Varazze, Bagni Rosso Peru, Bagni Delfino, Bagni Cavetto, Bagni Margherita Branch.
