Sometimes man and nature work in harmony to create something extraordinary: one sublime example of this is the Cinque Terre, a jagged stretch of coastline incorporating five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore.
This is an extremely popular destination with its crystal blue sea, its imposing cliffs and its charming terraces that slope down to the shore. You can also visit the Cinque Terre National Park, which was created to protect this unique landscape.
Varese Ligure in the province of La Spezia, boasts an enviable record: it was the first community in Europe to be awarded the ISO 14001 environmental certification.
In other words, this is the most eco-friendly village in Italy, thanks to the efforts made in environmental efficiency. Visit Varese Ligure and admire the complete harmony that typifies the Val di Vara.
A trip to Liguria cannot be complete without a visit to Genoa, a city rich in history and Italy’s biggest port.
Among the must-see attractions of the City of the Lantern may we suggest the Palazzi dei Rolli, a series of prestigious stately mansions that have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and the Aquarium of Genoa, the second biggest in Europe.
