Liguria is in north-western Italy, bordering with France. The region features impressive mountains, colored by the green Mediterranean turf and overlooking the Ligurian Sea.
Nature, mountains, culture, the waters of this section of the Mediterranean are an enormously important feature of the region, with its characteristic rocky coasts interrupted by small coves, and beaches of fine golden sand.
The Cinque Terre and Portofino are the most famous parts of Liguria in the western part. 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.
Genoa is the main city but there are many more nice small towns and villages in that area. San Remo is the city of flowers, famous for the Italian Music Festival and for its Casino.
Cinque Terre is our favorite part of Liguria and you can see many pictures in our gallery. Near Cinque Terre is Portovenere – another amazing place in that part of Italy.
