Region of Liguria

flag of Liguria - italy

Liguria is a long, thin costal strip nestling at the foot of vine covered mountains. Here pastel-colored houses bask in the Mediterranean sun, while their gardens, flourishing in the mild climate, are a riot of colorful plants. In contrast with resorts like Portofino and even San Remo, the bustling city of Genoa, for centuries a trading port of immense power is the only major population centre.
