Location of Liguria

Liguria is a north Italian region, bordered by France on the West, the Ligurian Sea on the South, Piemont and Emilia-Romagna on the North and Tuscany on the East. Its capital, Genova is famous for its vessel traffic, thus making the region a perfect destination if you’re renting a boat in Liguria.
The smallest region in Italy, Liguria only covers 5, 421 sq km, however, it’s quite densely populated, counting 1.5 million inhabitants.

Weather of Liguria

The area is characterised by mild weather and moderate winds– a corollary to the surrounding Apennines. The northerly winds only blow in the nights and early mornings, thus Liguria is perfect for renting a boat and sailing around. The coastline is extremely diverse, flecked with cliffs and sandy patches, offering breathtaking views. The region’s climate is the Mediterranean, with hot, humid summers.

Main sights in Liguria

This unique nook of Italy welcomes you with a wealth of attractions. If you rent a boat in Liguria, you’ll get the chance to explore the romantic, quaint little coastal towns as well as to immerse yourself in the immense beauty of the sea.Camogli, for instance, is a perfect spot for those who wish to avoid crowds. Its splendid beach is lined with a row of houses, boasting all the colours of the rainbow, whereas its atmospheric promenade is flecked with bars and restaurants, awaiting weary travellers.

La Spezia, the famous military hub, however, is worlds apart. The town is home to the country’s main military harbour The Abbey Church of Santa Maria Assunta, dating back to the 13th century is definitely worth a visit. It gives a home to such artworks as Andrea della Robbia’s pieces. And you should also include the Cristo Re dei Secoli Cathedral (Christ the King of Centuries) on your to-see list. Another gem, Albenga stuns visitors with its awe-inspiring architecture. Free some time to visit the San Michele Cathedral, surrounded by the three 13th century towers; they are certainly some rather unique landmarks. Another fascinating attraction is the wreck of a Roman yacht that sunk in pre-Christian times. You can admire the wreck in the San Michele Palace.
