Liguria at a glance

Liguria Hotel

A region where the sea can be found everywhere: lapping its fishing villages and the indented coastline, in the ancient roads of its cities and amidst the flowers of the Riviera, in the faces and the history of the people.

Occupying the north western coastal area of Italy, Liguria is a narrow curve of land home to world-famous beaches, a rocky coastline and enchanting countryside, squeezed between the mountains and the sea. Travelling along the spectacular coastal road which hugs the shores of Liguria, visitors are party to a wonderful game of light and shadow, passing through a series of tunnels, which open to reveal glimpses of enchanting bays and dramatic escarpments covered with an exuberant Mediterranean flora, which seems to almost cascade into the shimmering sea. Liguria is home to the glamorous seaside resort of Portofino, the Cinque Terre and Genoa, city which conserves a glorious past as a Italian maritime republic.
