Cheap flights to Liguria

Liguria is a coastal region of Italy found in the north-western section of the country. It is bordered by France to the west, Piedmont region to the north, and Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany to the east. It sits on the Ligurian Sea, while the Alps and the Apennines create a sturdy border for the region. Tourists usually visit the region for its beaches, towns, and cuisine – and the best way to enjoy it is to stop by its key provinces and tour it one step at a time. The region is comprised of four main provinces namely Genoa, Savona, Imperia, and La Spezia.

What to see & do

Genoa – Genoa is a historical port city in the Northern Italy and is the capital region of Liguria. Travellers will see the best of the Italian Riviera through this wonderful city – a Dickensian tourism destination (Dickens reference) in all of its glory. Although overshadowed by its powerful sisters Rome, Venice, and Florence, the city's long and honourable history as a rich and powerful trade centre comes to view. Its multitude of hidden gems show only to the persistent: excellent cuisine, artistic churches, lovely seaside villas, Europe's biggest aquariums, the birthplace of explorer Columbus, and terracotta-roofed villages. Go around the city by walk or by gondola – the choice is all yours.

San Remo – the city of San Remo is best known as a tourist destination again in the Italian Riviera, made even more famous by the Sanremo Music Festival and the Milan-San Remo cycling route. Moreover, the city is also known as the wannabe Monte Carlo, a sun-kissed Mediterranean resort full of casinos and lavish villas perfect for tourists looking for some luxe. Visit the Bussana Vecchia for some artistic lash, the Il Casino Municipale, and the restaurants around the city.

Santa Margherita Ligure – Set on the Gulf of Tigullio between Rapallo and Portofino, the resort and fishing town of Santa Margherita Ligure is a fashionable yet quiet neighbourhood that is simple yet exquisite. A lovely palm-lined harbour, good shopping options, great cafes, and interesting sights from the 16th and 17th centuries make the visit to the town worth a traveller's while.
