Situated in the Northwest of Italy, Liguria is a region which stretches from Tuscany to the border of southern France. The unspoiled countryside is bounteous with rolling hillside and gorgeous vineyards for as far as the eye can see and the many picturesque towns in this region could most aptly be characterised by their shadowed alleyways and medieval centre squares.
The rugged coastline is internationally renowned and although there are numerous picture perfect beaches, a trip up to the cliffs will really give you something oceanic to glance at. There are plenty of coves dotted along the coastal part of Liguria and a sunset is not to be missed.
The region of Liguria offers plenty of interesting town and villages to drop by and if you head to the most northern town of Ventimiglia, you will be able to mingle with the French and Italians during the weekly market. The hiking trail of Via dell'Amore offers a wonderful excursion along the cliffs which overlook the beautiful ocean and towns such as Portofino and Rapallo are well worth looking at too.
Italy's largest marine harbour of Genoa is located in the Liguria region, however if you're looking for something magically picturesque, a visit to the flower city of San Remo should definitely be scribbled into your itinerary. This region offers numerous intriguing towns like Riomaggiore and Corniglia and although they are difficult to access due to their proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, they are well worth the effort.
