Dolceacqua, Liguria. Dolceacqua is a comune in the Province of Imperia in the Italian region Liguria, located about 120 km southwest of Genoa and about 35 km west of Imperia, on the border with France.
Went there last year while going through the mountains visiting Apricale and Bajardo. Beautiful small town, especial the medieval part of Dolceaqua, which is shown in this picture.
