Santa Margherita Ligure The Essential
Recommended
This elegant seaside resort on the Portofino promontory, along the Ligurian Coast, was much favoured by the French writer Valery Larbaud (1881-1957). It is still as popular today for its seafront promenade, fine historic buildings and small beach right in the heart of the town. Very busy in summertime, Santa Margherita is nonetheless endearing.
