522 Hotels in Liguria, Italy
Liguria is an arc shaped region, a long narrow curved stretch of coastline tightened between mounts and sea and its chief town Genoa, divides nearly to half this great arc in two distinguished parts: the Riviera Ligure di Levante (Eastern Coast) and the Riviera Ligure di Ponente (Western Coast). All the coastal villages in the Liguria Riviera look painted by a great artist: the little houses set in an intense blue color of the sea and sky and tightened next to each other, create a semicircle around the small port in which the boats of the fishermen are berthed.
The two coasts of Liguria are the most renowned tourist resorts in Italy. In the Riviera Ligure di Levante there are famous villages as Portofino, Portovenere and Cinque Terre, which have been declared Uncesco's humanity patrimonies in 1997, and mall islands like Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto. Along the Riviera Ligure di Ponente we equally find famous localities as Alassio and Sanremo, characterized by wider sandy beaches.
Even Genoa, although a commercial and industrial printing, has recently become a tourist city thanks to a sage mix between building new structures (the Aquarius is one of the largest in Europe) and refurbishing the many monuments as churches and palaces that recall the splendor of its republic history, but the charm and fascination of Liguria are its evocative landscapes.
