On the north-western side, Liguria is certainly known for the Cinque Terre, ancient and enchanting localities that enjoy a spectacular view of the sea.
Seafaring villages characterised by their multicoloured houses and vineyards clinging to the coastline outline a landscape that leaves one speechless.
Genoa, a major port city and one of the Maritime Republics, has exploited its geographical location to benefit and prosper in the Mediterranean trade.
It boasts numerous natural beauties, a really strong tourist attraction: the Riviera dei Fiori, Portofino and Porto Venere. Here, too, there is five-star food and wine to be sampled in contemplation of panoramas that are nothing short of breathtaking.
