Liguria Places And Charm, Italy

The entire arch of the Ligurian coast is a stretch of sand and pebble beaches alternating with cliffs overhanging the sea, enclosing small coves. The Alps and Apennines stand behind the coast with their great mountain environments.

Liguria's climate is pleasant and mild year round. Thanks to the influence of the sea, the average temperatures are 10 C° in winter and 24 C° in summer. This climate makes it possible to practice many sports almost all year long. Water sports reign along the coast: sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, scuba diving and water skiing. Both the coast and inland area offer excellent conditions for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.



Nature Reserves

Liguria is home to seventeen protected areas. Nozio recommends the Parco Nazionale delle Cinque Terre, which offers landscapes and routes overhanging the sea and a priceless protected marine area. Not far off is the promontory of Portofino, with one of the highest concentrations of flora in the Mediterranean and some of the most famous scenery in the world. The park also contains the famous Marine Reserve, which attracts 5000 scuba divers to its waters every year. The inland area is home to the Parco Naturale dell'Aveto. This park contains a wide variety of rich environments, including the Mines of Gambatesa, still in business, which can be visited by special train.

For hiking fans we recommend the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, a trail more than 400 km long which runs along the ridges from Ventimiglia to La Spezia. The routes of the Alta Via are suitable for everyone and can be done on foot, horseback or mountain bike, with grandiose views and interesting remains of peasant life.
