I find some of things you find when you travel are so strange to be true. Here we have a small village in top of the hill called Seborga that claims they are a principality (similar to Monaco) and they are independent of Italy, the...More

We stopped here on our way to Monaco. I'm a passport stamp collector, and the rarity of the Seborga stamp convinced me it was worth going out of our way to visit. But this place is so much more than quaint! The people are incredibly...More

A pretty village with an interesting story. A pleasant place to wander around especially if you've been to the market in Bordighera on Thursday morning, this makes an easy inland excursion after lunch just for a couple of hours.

The tiny, but scenic village of Seborga (30 minutes from Nice/Monaco/Sanremo) was an independent fiefdom for 800+ years but is still insisting on it sovereign status (at least that's what they will tell you). The setting is beautiful and the views of the hills and...More
