Riviera Ligure

Recommended
The Italian or Ligurian Riviera extends from Ventimiglia to La Spezia and enjoys a mild climate much appreciated by tourists. To the west of Genoa, the Riviera di Ponente - "coast of the setting sun" - is home to smart resorts (San Remo, Bordighera) and medieval villages (Noli, Albenga). To the east, the Riviera di Levante - "coast of the rising sun" - is steeper and includes promontories (Portofino and Cinque Terre) and fishing villages in its sheltered bays. A winning combination of coastal amenities and unspoilt hinterland beauty!
