Liguria and the Italian Riviera - Wikpedia Source
The Italian Riviera, or Ligurian Riviera (Italian Riviera ligure) is the narrow coastal strip which lies between the Ligurian Sea and the mountain chain formed by the Maritime Alps and the Apennines. Longitudinally it extends from the border with France and the French Riviera (or Côte d'Azur) near Ventimiglia (a former customs post) to Capo Corvo (also known as Punta Bianca) which marks the eastern end of the Gulf of La Spezia and is close to the border with Tuscany. The Italian Riviera thus includes nearly all of the coastline of Liguria. (Historically it extended further to the west, through what is now French territory as far as Monaco.)
The Riviera's centre is Genoa, which divides it into two main sections: the Riviera di Ponente (“the coast of the setting sun”), extending westwards from Genoa to the French border; and the Riviera di Levante (“the coast of the rising sun”) between Genoa and Capo Corvo.
It is famous for its particularly mild climate which, together with the charm of its old fishing ports and the beauty of its landscape, has made it a popular destination for travellers and tourists since the time of Byron and Shelley.
Many villages and towns in the area are internationally known, such as Portofino, Bordighera, Lerici, and the Cinque Terre.
Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure feature in many classic films and have been loved and visited by tourists for decades.
Santa Margherita Ligure
Santa Margherita is the town that leads to Portofino. Even during the autumn and winter months, there is so much to explore in this idyllic little town. A delightful destination for couples or for families, the town provides a warm welcome. Enjoy the delicacies from the sea to fresh stuffed pastas to the famous (and slightly addictive) focaccia bread. You will feel instantly relaxed, from the moment you arrive.
