The coast of Genova is a marvel that few places in the world can pride themselves with. Arriving from La Spezia, the traveller meets Sestri Levante, a charming maritime village built on a promontory that dives into the blue sea, as if it were an island 'anchored' to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. Here begins the Gulf of Tigullio, delimited to the west by the Portofino promontory: two gems inserted at the edges of one of the most beautiful places that nature and man could create. The architecture of the Eastern Riviera is famous for the characteristic buildings almost clinging onto the rock, and by the pastel walls. The same style can be found along the Tigullio coast, with Portofino, Rapallo, Santa Margherita Ligure and Sestri Levante placed along the coast and surrounded by the green of the maquis and the sea reflecting this aura of beauty.our villas in Portofino ›
The Cinque Terre with Porto Venere and the islands of Palmaria, Tino
and Tinetto are another UNESCO site in Liguria. Those who visit these
places will hardly forget the charm and atmosphere of the five seaside
towns of Manarola, Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso.
18 km of coast enclose and guard a little paradise: the rocks falling sheer to a limpid sea and the colors and scents of the earth, harmoniously combined with the typical buildings entrenched on the coast, create a unique scenery.
And again, the islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto, situated in front of Portovenere, an ancient fishing town whose colorful buildings, one next to the other, mix their iridescent colors with the deep blue of the sea.
Superb for the story it tells. Superb for the historical architecture that ennobles the streets. Superb for the modern architecture that witnesses the will to explore. Superb for the gardens and parks that color it. Superb for the artwork it offers. Superb for the nature it fosters. This is Genova, a portal between land and sea, a meeting point. Crossroad of cultures and peoples since ancient times, Genova has always been a land that breathes the air to live from the sea. Its history tells about it with generosity, showing richness and beauty in every corner of the old town. The narrow and characteristic 'carruggi' snakes around the tall buildings along the medieval map, apparently inhomogeneous yet well defined by the main streets that meander toward the sea and inland. Beautiful buildings, gorgeous churches, façades decorated by stuccos and frescos, invaluable art collections, all bring the ‘century of the Genovesi’ to the memory, the highest moment in the cultural development of the city.
