Trip Report Italy's Other Riviera: The Riviera delle Palme

Jump to last reply

I don't ever post here in the Italy forum but if any of you regulars here ever go to the France forum then you might be familiar with the trip reports I post over there. If that thought scares you then you might want to bail out now because this report is just like all my France reports except it takes place in Italy.

I'm documenting my vacation time on my sister and brother in-law's farm in the Liguria region and my travels in the area exploring some its villages and landscapes, focusing on the coastline and the mountainous hinterlands behind it starting about 30km west of Genoa in Varazze and continuing west down the coast to the environs of Finale Ligure. This area doesn't attract nearly the attention of the more famous stretch of Riviera east of Genoa to Cinque Terre but is really no less worthy of exploration. It abounds in beautiful coastline with rugged mountains stretching down to the sea, charming medieval villages, local gastronomy, wine, and all the things you'd seek in an Italian Riviera experience. If you're intrigued here's the link to the photo report I've made.
