Varigotti is a frazione (locality) of the comune of Finale Ligure, Liguria in  northern Italy. In late antiquity, it was known as Varicottis. In 643, when it was home to a Byzantine fortification, it was destroyed by Lombard king Rothari. Later it suffered from Saracen raids. In the 12th century it was contended between the Marquisses of Noli and the Del Carretto family. Later it was a possession of the Republic of Genoa, and became an autonomous commune after the French Revolution. In 1869, during the construction of the Genoa-Ventimiglia railroad, it was annexed to the Final Pia commune, and was subsequently part of Finale Ligure. Varigotti is a tourist destination, with both beach and hilly nature attractions.
