LIGURIA: THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES TO VISIT ABSOLUTELY
When I decide to take a day trip or two somewhere, I always think of Liguria . In northern Italy and in my city, it is the closest place to relax a few days by the sea, and enjoy a mild climate even in winter. There are places that are very beautiful and in my opinion not yet known. That’s why I thought I’d show you all the most beautiful places to visit absolutely
The five lands: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, Monterosso al Mare are ancient fishing villages located along the rugged Ligurian coast.
The Sentiero Azzurro, a hiking trail that stretches along the coast, connects the Cinque Terre with each other and offers splendid views of the sea.
For those who do not like walking, the train is the best way to visit all the villages of the Cinque Terre.
The Cinque Terre Card (Cinque Terre Card) allows free travel on all routes between Levanto and La Spezia, integrated with the train ticket, and avoids the need to pay for trails, buses, etc. from time to time
Monterosso is the pearl of the Cinque Terre, as well as for its beauty and care, because it boasts beautiful beaches, such as that of the Giants.
Riomaggiore, and this part is the most photographed point in Italy in the world of this place.
In the province of Sanremo. An artistic village built on the ruins of an ancient medieval village devastated by the earthquake. Totally abandoned for years. In the fifties it came back to life thanks to the presence of numerous Italian and foreign artists who have decided to renovate and give life to this village.
