Most of Liguria is a hilly area, crossed by valleys that gently slope down to a narrow strip of the sea coast. The part of the region occupied by the foothills is barren and practically without vegetation.
Lonely villas and small Italian villages can be found throughout Liguria. The largest city, port and, at the same time, the capital of the Ligurian region is Genoa.
The climate in the region is mild and very comfortable. Pleasant sea breezes make summers cool and winters less cold, thanks to the Alps, which are located around the chain. Therefore, such a comfortable climate is a paradise for pines, olives, palms, laurels and other evergreen trees.
Despite the fact that Liguria is a mountainous region, it is not highlanders who live here, but sailors and sellers. It is noteworthy that about half of the entire population of the region lives in Genoa itself.
Genoa is a port city, here you can endlessly admire the moored ships and yachts. And Genoa also has the largest aquarium in Europe! You haven't been there yet? I recommend! A must visit! It is super interesting not only for children, but also for adults.
Tourism is developed in Liguria, because is one of the main sources of income for Italians. The mild climate and the riot of vegetation attract guests from all over Europe to relax on the beach and stroll under the shade of the olives.
The infrastructure is well developed, many fashionable hotels and restaurants are always ready to receive guests. During the pandemic, of course, things got complicated, but better times will come for restaurateurs and hoteliers, I really hope so!
What to see in Liguria? I recommend visiting the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, Piazza Ferrari, Palazzo Reale and San Giorgio.
It will not be difficult to buy real estate in Liguria, both with views of the sea and in the mountains. In my catalog there are many proposals for this region of Italy: for every taste and size.
