The Ligurian Riviera “Italian Riviera” is the stretch of marine coast – or riviera – that overlooks the Ligurian Sea and extends from the Principality of Monaco to Capo Corvo (Province of La Spezia).
This territory crosses all four Ligurian provinces of Savona, Imperia, Genoa and La Spezia, for a total length of about 330 km.
The Ligurian Riviera is divided into the Riviera di Levante, east of Genoa-Voltri, the northernmost point of the Ligurian Sea at the mouth of the river Leira. It therefore also includes the city of Genoa and ends at the gulf of La Spezia, and Riviera di Ponente, west of Genoa-Voltri up to the western limit of the Monegasque principality. Among the maritime and commercial airports of this stretch there is the port of Genoa – among the most important in the Mediterranean Sea – and the ports of Savona-Vado and La Spezia.
