Diano Marina`s history is very old and dates back to the Late Palaeolithic times and the Iron Age. Diano Marina then became permanently inhabited during the Bronze Age. Around the year 200 BC, the Romans established a small village and dedicated it to the god Bormano. It was only much later that the valley in which Diano Marina also lies was dedicated to the goddess Diana.

Like many other coastal villages, Diano Marina suffered a series of invasions by the Saracens and pirates between the 9th and 10th centuries. A new economic upswing then came through the cultivation of olives which were introduced to the village by the Benedictine Monks in the 11th century.

The region came under the rule of the Marquise of Clavesana and was a free and independent municipality. Diano Marina joined the communitas Diani in 1199. By so doing, Diano Marina became the main trading area for olives and olive oil. Through its direct access to the sea, this village also had direct connections to other European ports, and hence became a good centre for loading and off-loading goods to be transported by sea.

During the 16th century the village had to fend off several attacks from pirates, and hence watch- towers and defence systems were constructed along the coast. After the fall of the Genoa Republic, the village reverted back to the Liguria Republic and was annexed to the 1st French Empire in 1805. Diano Marina joined the Italian Kingdom in 1861. Large sections of the village were considerably damaged and destroyed by the earthquake of1887, and that included some artistic statues.

The opening of the railway line between Genoa and Ventimiglia gave Diano Marina a new upswing through tourism, most especially during the 1950s and 60s.

Diano Marina belongs to the municipalities of Diano Calderina, Diano Sereta and Gorleri and is one of the villages in the province of Imperia which lies in the Liguria region. Near Diano Marina are some other villages like: San Bartolomeo al Mare (2.4 km), Imperia (5.6 km) and Diano Castello (3.2 km). Turn off from the highway exit to San Bartolomeo al Mare and follow the SP34 up to the SS1 on the right. Turn off onto the SS1 and follow it until you reach Diano Marina.
