Liguria is in the north-west of Italy and borders with France. This region has impressive mountains and sweet hills, colored by the green Mediterranean turf and overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea with high and indented coasts. This region has multiple facets, different yet indissolubly bound up with each other, to offer a wide range of opportunities to those who choose to spend their holidays in this land. It offers nature, sea, mountains and culture as well as entertainment and night life: you only have to take your pick. The sea is the great resource of this region, with its rocky coasts interrupted by small coves and beaches of fine golden sand. The Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets, the Gulf of Tigullio, Genoa and Paradise Gulf, the Riviera delle Palme and the Riviera dei Fiori make up the famous coast of Liguria which stretches from Ameglia to Ventimiglia, for more than 300 km. In this itinerary, spectacular for the beauty of its land and seascapes, we can see the most famous tourist resorts of Liguria: Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo, Sestri Levante, with its enchanting Baia del Silenzio, and Chiavari. There's a succession of ample beaches, little ports and amazing sceneries to explore, which turn into lively centres by night, with plenty of entertainment and shopping on offer. There's Sanremo, the city of flowers, famous for the Italian Music Festival and for its Casino. The refined towns of Bordighera and Alassio, with its 3 kilometers of fine sand, along with Laigueglia and Varigotti are some of the 'gems' embedded in the Riviera di Ponente. Then comes Portovenere, in front of Palmaria Island, and Lerici with its grand medieval castle, elegant villas and lush gardens. The sea is so beautiful that it also attracts several specimens of sperm whales, rorquals and dolphins, which found their natural habitat and live safely in this area, called the 'Sanctuary of Cetaceans'. The great woods of Liguria with their century-old trees, a real natural heritage, are a good alternative to traditional tourism. You will plunge into nature to get to know and see the places where man, with love and dedication, managed to obtain the best fruits from this territory. Places full of history, culture and traditions, which witness the passage of ancient peoples coming from the sea. The provinces of the region are: Genoa (capital region), Imperia, Savona and La Spezia.
