Sense of history
Sep 2019
Although the old town is alive and well, there remains a sense of history. Not too big but fascinating walking around.

Again part of our Cruise trip. Can do some small purchase and a good walk. Just opposite to beech and a must place to visit. Short trip of 1 hour would be okay.

Under this huge medieval porch you can breathe at best the spirit of ancient Noli Republic
Jan 2016 • Couples
At the “Loggia della Repubblica”, i. e. the huge medieval porch that stretches parallel the Noli waterfront (and that once was much closer to the sea) some plaques are affixed that recall the reasons for which the city is famous. They mention for instance the sailor Antonio da Noli, who in the fifteenth century, on behalf of the Portuguese monarchy, discovered and first colonized the Cabo Verde islands.
Another plaque recalls that Dante, in his "Divine Comedy", to describe the very steep path of the Purgatory mountain, cites that which comes down to Noli. And we firstly saw Noli just as had to see it a traveler of the Middle Ages: going down the steep slopes of the cliffs that separate it from Varigotti, by a scenic trail (the current coastal road was built just in the nineteenth century).
It appears that Noli's people are quite proud of this past of the city: the signs showing the streets' names show always the phrase "Noli fifth maritime republic" [of Italy]: there are in fact just four ancient maritime republics traditionally recognized: Amalfi, Pisa, Genoa and Venice, but Noli would like to be considered precisely the fifth one.
Besides this “Loggia”, the traces of the past in Noli are numerous: old houses, towers built by the wealthiest families in the city (it seems that there were even seventy). But the Loggia perhaps summarizes in the best way the city's identity.
