Western Riviera

The Western Riviera of Liguria is often a  less well-known treasure with breathtaking scenery, old traditions and ancient foods. From Genoa to Ventimiglia the foothills of the Ligurian Alps, of the Finale area and the Beigua Park, all mountains overlooking the sea, dominate the coastal side characterized by flora and faunacunique in the Mediterranean. The production of olive oil, the citrus crops and the traditional fishing are the highlights of this part of Liguria, along with the amazing villages perched on top of thr hills as Triora, Bussana, Dolceacqua and Apricale.
