Described famously by many including Hemingway, Lord Byron and Shelley, Liguria is undoubtedly one of the most enchanting Italian regions. Much like a rainbow, its arch-shape stretches for 350 kms between the French Riviera and Tuscany in northwestern Italy. Liguria is a great combination of densely forested mountains sloping down to the crystal-clear blue water of the Mediterranean Sea. Dotted along the shores, you’ll find picture perfect postcard villages exploding with color.
With over one thousand kms of trekking trails, Liguria is a paradise for enthusiastic hikers. Here you can take in both the charms of the steep mountains and the serenity of the Mediterranean Riviera. You can enjoy the cozy atmosphere and charm of old fishing villages and medieval towns while tasting the region’s most famous culinary delicacies including seafood, pesto and focaccia.
Cinque Terre and Portofino are the most popular destinations in the region and absolutely worth visiting but there is so much more to explore. More attractive seaside towns with pastel-coloured houses, charming castles and secluded abbeys can be reached. Following ancient trails, walking across terraced vineyards, olive plantations and peaceful forests. Along the Ligurian coastline, behind every bend and promontory, there’s always another memorable view waiting for you!
