Liguria and its Riviere
Tourist Guide of Liguria

Liguria, with its myriad of aspects, is one of the most fascinating tourist destinations of North Italy. The sea, the mountains and the colors of nature make it varied and distinctive. Liguria is one of the smallest regions of Italy, after the Valle d'Aosta and Molise but, with its 1,609,552 inhabitants, it is also the most densely populated after the Campania, Lombardy and Lazio. The land is very diverse as it is affected by both the Alps and Apennine and is washed by the sea. Usually it is customary to divide the region into two parts: the Riviera di Ponente and the Riviera di Levante, and also the Ligurian coast is divided into three bays: the Gulf of Genoa (most important), the Gulf of La Spezia and the Gulf of Tigullio ranging from Portofino to Sestri Levante.

Among the most important cities we mention Genoa (regional capital), Imperia, La Spezia, Savona but also other popular tourist destinations such as San Remo and Portofino. The region is well appreciated for its Mediterranean climate, sunny summers and mild winters offering extensive opportunities for visitors and locals alike to explore the beautiful Ligurian territory. The landscape is made even more beautiful by the many vines, olives and fruit trees but especially by the cultivation of flowers, especially along the Riviera di Ponente, no coincidence that the A10 motorway has been termed "Highway of Flowers".

Tourism is one of the most important resources of Liguria, especially during the summer when miles of beaches attract many tourists from all over Italy and Europe. The numerous hotels in Liguria are ready to welcome tourists during the other seasons when they organized exhibitions, festivals, fairs or people meet to explore new experiences through activities like "fishing tourism" or "farm" had the opportunity to a restful fishing or agriculture accompanied by experts of the trade.
