The webcam in the Italian city of Varazze shows the harbor of pleasure boats with a beautiful promenade. As can be clearly seen in the online camera, there are cafes and restaurants near the pier where you can have lunch or drink a cup of coffee overlooking the seaport in the web camera.
Varazze, where the live broadcast is coming from, is a resort town located west of Genoa, in the Lirugia region, on the western coast of the Ligurian Sea – Riviera di Ponente (Italian Riviera). Varazze in this live camera is proud of its longest beaches in all of Liguria.
The city where the online camera is located got its name in the days of Ancient Rome from the Roman word Varagine – “trees”. Later, the Romans called this place “the city of shipyards”, which was quite suitable for the city, since in the times of antiquity and the Middle Ages there were shipyards on its territory.
Varazze with the port online, became famous due to the fact that canonized Jacopo da Varagine, a famous monk and writer of the 13th century was born here.
The old town of Varazze has many historical sights, among which the main place is occupied by a religious monument – the Church of St. Ambrogio from 1535. The bell tower of the temple, erected in the 14th century in the classic Lombard style, stands out especially. The churchyard is covered with pebbles in the style of the Greek Aegean islands. And its 12th century façade is an element of the city walls.
Another equally important church in the city with this live camera is the Church of Santa Caterina da Siena (La chiesa di Santa Caterina da Siena).
Another vibrant church in Varazze, where there is a live broadcast from, is the Church of San Domenico, built in 1419. Inside the temple, the remains of Jacopo da Varagine are kept in a silver urn. In the facade of the religious building, you can see a cannonball stuck there after the shelling of the city by the French in 1746.
From the Church of San Domenico it is convenient to walk along the abandoned train tracks. And in the vicinity of Varazze it is interesting to visit several curious monasteries and small fishing villages.
In Varazze with the harbor shown by a web camera, there is a wide vivid promenade and a sandy three-kilometer beach. The city’s surroundings are ideal for cycling along a variety of routes.
The coast of Varazze, where the online camera is located, differs from the rest of the coast of Liguria – it is covered with sand. Only in some areas you can find rocky areas washed by crystal clear azure water. This place has attracted poets, artists, romantics and lovers from ancient times to the present day.
Traveling to Varazze in this online stream is not only relaxing on the beach, but also visiting the historical sights listed above, including the ruins of the city fort, built during the time of Ancient Rome, as well as the shipyard of the sailing fleet.
