Top Places to Visit in the Italian Riviera

There’s something magical about the Italian Riviera. A strip of land, ever so thin, and yet lined from east to west with places so beautiful it would be hard to find them anywhere else. The Ligurian coast stretches all the way from France’s Cote d’Azur to the northern tip of Tuscany, and is backed by the Maritime Alps. The capital city of Genova splits the land in two halves. West of Genova is the Riviera di Ponente, and to the east the Riviera di Levante.

The Ligurian beaches disappear into a stretch of clear blue waters, and the seaside towns are characteristically old-fashioned. The Gulf of La Spezia to the east was Byron and Shelley’s favorite, and was renamed The Gulf of Poets in their honor. To the west, Ernest Hemingway and Ezra Pound frequented the town of Rapallo.

In the region of Liguria there’s something for everyone. Head east, in the Riviera di Levante, if you seek breathtaking scenery and glamour. If what you’re looking for are huge beaches and great weather, then head west to the Riviera di Ponente. Whether you’re looking for a spectacular panorama, a high-end getaway, or even a budget holiday, make your way up to the north of Italy and you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.

Le Cinque Terre

Along the eastern most part of the Italian Riviera you will find the Cinque Terre, or the 5 lands. Five spectacular old fishing towns (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al mare) built across an 18km stretch of Italian coastline, resting on the tips of five cliffs, overlooking clear turquoise waters. Until 1874, upon completion of the first train line, the area was almost completely isolated. Today, the Cinque Terre are conserved as a national marine park. The villages are connected to one another by a single train. And for the bravest, they can be reached by foot, some in a matter of minutes, others after a long but absolutely worthwhile hike. When visiting Cinque Terre and the Gulf of La Spezia, make sure you also pass through Porto Venere. Together with the Cinque Terre, Porto Venere is part of a UNESCO world heritage site.

Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour Italy?

Can anyone who has used it help me, i have been looking for answers for this question online for a while.

I am going to purchase a ticket for the hop on hop off bus. The first stop is on the opposite side of town from where my hotel is, but one of the stops on the tour is at the train station right outside my hotel. So my question is can i just get on at that stop or do i have to get on at the very first stop?

Good question! I had the same problem / question in the past since I finally try one of thoose Hop On Hop Off Busses during one of my travel abroad.

1. TERMINI - Largo di Villa Peretti
2. SANTA…
