The Ligurian Coast is arguably the most beautiful and romantic stretch on the Italian coastline, renowned for its mild climate, prolific cultural and heritage sites and classical atmosphere.
As well as a wonderfully laid-back lifestyle, the charms of its ancient fishing ports and scenic landscapes have ensured that this part of the meandering Italian Riviera remains among the most popular yacht charter destinations in the Mediterranean.
The arc of the Italian Riviera consists of a thin coastal strip at the foot of the Maritime Alps, and encompasses the dramatic coastline of Liguria, between Tuscany and the French Côte d'Azur. Narrow beaches dust the coves and bays between sheer rock faces plunging into the water. Bustling seaside towns define elegance and at the historical and cultural centre is Genoa, dividing the shoreline in half.
