Liguria is a region located in the northwest of Italy. It is bordered to the west by France, to the north by Piedmont and to the west with Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, while its southern border is drawn from the-Ligurian Sea. The region has the geographical feature of being narrow and long and extends from west to east. The territory and almost totally mountainous, in fact, the region is covered over the entire length by theAppennino Ligure; mountains turn into hills approaching the coast. It was precisely this characteristic and lack of plains that led man to invent the characteristic terraces made with typical dry stone walls,made with stones inserted between them without using cement or lime in order to increase the sur-face of arable land. The length of the coastline exceeds 300 km and the towns, large and small, are almost all along it. Almost the entire coastline consists of the cliffs overlooking the sea or from rocky shores, sandy beaches are quite limited in number and more numerous are the pebble beaches. Despite this, there are a huge number of beach resorts that provide umbrellas and loungers to relax and enjoy the mild climate that is on the Ligurian coast. The regional capital is Genoa, where in the old town you can see the typical architecture of fishing villages with its narrow alleys “carruggi” or its long stairways that allow to overcome the various gradients of the city. Its hallmark is the Aquarium, one of the largest in Europe, which have been recreated many marine environments and where are hosted numerous aquatic animals. In the Riviera of Levante are definitely to remember the Cinque Terre (Manarola, Riomaggiore, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso) with the islands of Palmara, Tino and Tinetto, all locations are considered a world heritage site by UNESCO that have the characteristic of being small villages perched on cliffs overlooking the sea and connected by narrow paths surrounded by beautiful nature. In the Riviera of Ponente instead we remember San Remo known as the city of flowers and where eve-ry year takes place the Italian Song Festival. In this small town there is also the casino (one of the four existing in Italy). Other places of particular tourist attraction are: Portofino, Rapallo, Chiavari, Alas-sioand Bordighera. And ,finally, to remember that the entire Ligurian Sea is located inside the so-called “sanctuary for ma-rine mammals”, that is a Protected Area of enormous size where they live and breed many species of ce-taceans such as dolphins, whales and sperm-whales.
