About Civezza



Civezza lies on the ridge of a hill, in the first hinterland, at 222 meters above sea level, a shelter of two valleys.

The historical documents narrate that they were made by three Venetians, who fled their land for political dissent, built a gondola shape to refer to its origin the name of the same, from the Latin "Cives Etiam".

Come on a ?? gondola ?? among secular olive trees offers a breathtaking view: to the south the sea, to the north Mount Faudo with the villages of Pietrabruna, Boscomaro and Torre Paponi on the slopes and all around evergreen vegetation: olive trees and Mediterranean scrub still wild and unspoiled for spectacular views from postcard and suggestive paths of treckking or mountain biking.

The five Saracen towers spread along the town, strategically, at the time, sighting ramparts and defense against the incursions of the Moors from the sea.

Civezza is ideal for a beach holiday: a summer stay to sunbathe, to discover splendid coastal landscapes, hidden bays, sandy and pebbly beaches and why not, to practice the most popular water sports, from sailing, windsurfing and diving .
