A seaside town on a human scale, the rhythms of the fishermen still mark the day along the canal.
The old town centre spreads out along the canal port, and along its streets you can see low, colourful houses, shops with the flavour of the past, and craft markets. The piazza delle conserve, the alleys and cobbled streets along the canal are home to a myriad of small fish restaurants. Places of historical and cultural interest include the Maritime Museum with its ancient sails and the house of the poet Marino Moretti. The walk to the two lighthouses along the quay is exciting.
