Best things to do and places to visit for Liguria

A surface area of just 5,416 square kilometers contains endless offerings for tourists: Liguria, home to authentic Italian cities and villages, rugged hills and beautiful beaches. It is found in northwest Italy, on the French border, where the Ligurian coast stretches over 300 kilometers from Ventimiglia to Amegna, through such places as the Cinque Terre, the Gulf of Poets, Tigullio, Genoa, the Golfo Paradiso, the Riviera delle Palme, and the Riviera dei Fiori, where you will find Sanremo, the city famous for the Sanremo Music Festival and for its casino.

Among the most renowned localities are Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo, Sestri Levante, Chiavari, Portofino, and Camogli. Here the sea also offers unexpected surprises with the Ligurian Sea Cetacean Sanctuary, where you can spot whales and dolphins with the right weather conditions, a perfect destination for whale watching and a day out boating.

The Ligurian Sea has a lot to offer those who love water sports and in some areas you can also go surfing.

Genoa, the state capital, is a continuous surprise; exploring the city on foot, you will find that it is home to many UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Don't miss the harbor, the aquarium (designed by famous architect Renzo Piano), the alleyways and narrow streets that run through it, or the Palazzi dei Rolli in the Strade Nuove district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Don't underestimate the hinterland with its villages and wild valleys: from the "haunted" city of Triora or Borgio Verezi, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.

It's also a good idea to try the local specialties: pesto, extra virgin olive oil, focaccia, fish, and Savona Chinotto, which is grown here.
