Liguria is a small coastal region which spans round from the top of the boot towards France, stretching from Tuscany in the south. This area is affectionately known as the Italian Riviera and has attracted tourists from northern Europe since its early development more than a century ago.
The coastal region is speckled with seaside resorts famous for their elegant promenades, the coastline is generally rocky and the region rises quite steeply in places up to the Maritime Alps which rise to 2600 metres in the north west of the region. These mountains are responsible for the sheltered climate which Liguria enjoys and this is a natural boost for tourism.
The main city of Liguria is the historic port of Genoa which was once a very strategic commercial foothold in this part of Italy. The popular resorts of Sanremo and Riviera di Ponente are also well worth visiting if you not stay there. Portofino has a posh harbour to sample and the cliff side villages of Cinque Terre are pretty spectacular.
The city of La Spezia has a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and quite warm winters. Savona is a seaport and comune in the northern Italian region of Liguria, capital of the Province of Savona, in the Riviera di Ponente on the Mediterranean Sea. Imperia is well known for the cultivation of flowers and olives, and is a popular destination for visitors in summer.
Ligurian cuisine tends to be delicious with plenty of appetising food including, olives, asparagus, artichokes, tomatoes and lots of fish, of course. Liguria is a flower growing region because of the gentle climate and the region is therefore quite colourful.
