The Best of Both Worlds on The Italian Ligurian Coast

On the Ligurian coast in Italy’s north, where the French and Italian Riviera meet is a luxury experience set against an authentic Italian village lifestyle.

If you dare to deviate just a few km’s inland from the popular Riviera resorts of San Remo, Ventimiglia, Bordighera and the like, you will find a series of idyllic medieval villages virtually untouched by tourism.
