Liguria, Italy

One of smallest regions in Italy, Liguria is also known as the Italian Riviera. It is a land of contrasts. Filled with romantic fishing villages, rock cliffs, and sandy beaches, Liguria is home to luxuries seaside resorts and the country’s largest commercial and naval port.

The spectacular journey along the Ligurian coast, near the border with France, goes through tunnel after tunnel, always bursting forth from darkness into warm sunlight, the aquamarine sea glimmering at your side. The region is used as the background area for movies about spies and sports car racing.

Liguria is home to seventeen protected areas. The most famous of them – Marine Reserve attracts 5000 scuba divers to its waters every year. The climate makes it possible to practice many sports almost all year long. Water sports reign along the coast: sailing, windsurfing, kite-surfing, kayaking,Scuba Diving and water skiing. The inland area offers excellent options for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. All of this makes Liguria a major tourist spot…
