Liguria is the land of contrasts, that's why the region is so loved by tourists
The Italian Riviera (or Liguria) borders with Côte d'Azur (French Riviera) and Tuscany - both of these regions positively affected ligurian landscape and culture. The ligurian coast is divided into two parts: eastern Riviera di Levante - full of cliffs over the sea, beautiful landscapes like Cinque Terre, Portofino and western Riviera di Ponente - with all the bays and sandy beaches. The hinterlands of Liguria are full of medieval villages, where agritourism farms offer organic and local products, while along the coastline you find glamorous sea resorts.
