Dive into the wonders of the past and nature
The Ligurian Sea has been the site of many occurrences in both ancient and recent history. In collaboration with the Ligurian Superintendency of Cultural Heritage, in Finale Ligure, exactly at Capo Noli, approximately two miles from the coast an underwater archaeological excavation was launched. It led to the discovery of countless artifacts belonging to an armed lifeboat of the vessel Ca Ira that took part in the Battle of Capo Noli in March 1795. This battle saw the French and British navies clash for control of the Mediterranean Sea and marked the beginning of Napoleon Bonaparte’s invasion of Europe.
