The Ligurian Riviera, an Area with ​​Rocky Coasts, Sandy Beaches and Colorful Homes


The Ligurian Riviera alternates uniquely between an area with ​​rocky and jagged coasts and one with smooth sandy beaches. One of the many beautiful eye catching scenes that thrills every traveler is the colorful homes. All these hues in the houses of the seashore villages allowed the sailors to recognize their home from a distance.⁣ ⁣

Most places in Liguria are connected to the sea with the main ones being Genoa and Portofino. The last one is a half-moon shaped seaside village and a perfect escape with its pastel houses lining the shore of the harbor.⁣
