The magic of the West Coast Riviera
The West Coast Riviera is characterised by its wide, sandy beaches, by ancient seaside villages and wonderful panoramas of this beautiful part of Liguria, from Genoa to the Côte d’Azur and the Principality of Monaco.
These romantic and evocative places will be a perfect postcard for couples of young lovers and newlyweds who will be easily won over by the breathtaking views and enchanting coastal villages that characterise this part of the Riviera.
Immediately after Genoa, you will find the towns of Arenzano and of Cogoleto, the last municipality in the territory of the Metropolitan City of Genoa. You will then enter the territory of the Province of Savona, where you will find ancient villages that have always lived off the sea and for the sea, such as Varazze, Celle town Ligure and towns that are the birthplace of traditional Ligurian ceramics production: Albisola Superiore and Albisola Marina. Here you can celebrate your love by the sea, surrounded by nature and the blue sky.
After the capital city, Savona, with its imposing Priamar Fortress, you can visit the villages and beautiful beaches of Bergeggi and Spotorno, the favourite destinations for couples in love to exchange sweet kisses, phrases and love promises. The ancient city of Noli, on the other hand, is attractive for its architectural beauty and its historical importance as an ancient fishing village. Finale Ligure is a real delight with its village and its precious gem represented by the beach and the characteristic village of Varigotti.
Let yourself be captivated by the numerous coastal villages that follow along the Aurelia road and that will steal your heart: Borgio Verezzi, Pietra Ligure, Loano, Borghetto Santo Spirito, until you reach the town of Albenga, an ancient bishopric, where you can breathe in the scent of the history of what is known as the “hundred towers city”.
After the towns of Alassio, Laigueglia and Andora, you will enter the Province of Imperia town and encounter the beautiful towns of Cervo, San Bartolomeo al Mare and Diano Marina before reaching the delightful main town, formed by the two hamlets of Oneglia and Porto Maurizio.
The beauty of the West Coast Riviera can be savoured in all the villages along the coast: San Lorenzo al Mare, Costarainera, Santo Stefano, Riva, Arma di Taggia and then the famous Sanremo.
Before reaching the French border, you will find Ospedaletti, Bordighera town, Vallecrosia, Camporosso and Ventimiglia, all of which offer awe and wonder!
