In the northwest of Italy, on the border with France, lies Liguria, a land of impressive mountains and gentle hills colored by the green of the Mediterranean scrub overlooking the Ligurian Sea with high and jagged shores.
It is a region of multiple facets, different but indissolubly united with each other to offer a rich panorama of opportunities for those who choose this land to spend their vacations.
Nature, sea, mountain, culture but also fun and worldly life: there is no embarrassment to choice.
The great resource of Liguria is the sea, with its rocky coasts interrupted by small creeks where they shelter pretty little sandy beaches.
The Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets, the Gulf of Tigullio, Genoa and the Gulf of Heaven, the Palm Riviera and the Riviera dei Fiori form the famous Ligurian coast extending from Ameglia to Ventimiglia for more than 300 km.
Along this itinerary, spectacular for the beauty of the land and sea landscapes, you will find the most famous tourist resorts of Liguria: Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo, Sestri Levante, with its enchanting Bay of Silence, and Chiavari. A succession of wide beaches, marinas and scenery all to explore, which in the evening leave room for fun and shopping.
Sanremo, the city of flowers, famous for the Festival of the Italian song and for the Casino, the refined Bordighera and Alassio with its 3 km of fine beach, Varigotti and Laigueglia are some of the “gems” set in the Riviera of Ponente.
And yet, Portovenere in front of the Palmaria and Lerici Island with the imposing medieval castle, its elegant villas and its lush gardens.
A sea so beautiful to attract many specimens of capidogli, whales and dolphins that in this area, called the “Sanctuary of Cetaceans”, have found their natural habitat where to live in total safety.
The great forests of Liguria, with its secular trees, a true natural heritage, represent an alternative offer to traditional tourism. A real immersion in nature to know and live the places where man, with love and dedication, has been able to get his best fruits from this land. Sites that exude history, culture and traditions, witnessing the passage of ancient peoples coming from the sea.
The provinces are: Genoa (capital), Imperia, Savona and La Spezia.
