Liguria is in the north-west of Italy by the French boarder. Liguria is a land of impressive mountains and sweet hills, coloured by the green Mediterranean vegetation facing the LigurianSea. It is a region with infinite nuances which can offer a rich array of opportunities for whoever chooses this land for their holiday. Nature, sea, mountains, culture, but also a lot of entertainment: there are many things to choose from. Liguria's greatest resource is the sea, with its rocky coasts interrupted by small beaches with fine sand.
It is so beautiful that it attracts many species of sperm whales, blue whales and dolphins which have created their natural habitat in this “Cetacean Sanctuary”. The great Ligurian forests offer something different to traditional tourism. Sanremo is a great starting point for fascinating excursions along the Riviera and the Principality of Monaco (Montecarlo) which is only 40 minutes away by car along the coast. There are many brief trips which can be taken inland to admire the castles and many colourful villages.
When people talk about Ligurian cuisine, they immediately refer to the famous pesto (a tasty basil sauce) used to flavour pasta. But Liguria is also a land of vineyards and olive trees and their products end up in excellent wines and extra virgin olive oils. Of course there are many sea and meat dishes. Do not forget about the focaccia, the famous “sardenaria” of Sanremo and the thin oven baked chick pea “farinata”. Among the traditional desserts you can find the chocolate “Baci di Sanremo”.
