Protected by the mountains on one side and illuminated by the sun and the sea on the other, according to legend, Cipressa owes its name to the first inhabitants of the area who apparently fled the island of Cyprus and landed on the Aregai beach, the first beach from the cycle path. The houses of the village are arranged in a protective semicircle and tell the story of numerous raids, but also of the life of the fishermen and farmers who still animate the town today. Cipressa is a renowned tourist destination where visitors spend a few days resting and then continue their way down the cycle path to discover the beauties of the Riviera di Ponente, over 50 kilometers of coastline with the French city of Toulon in the distance.
