Ligurian Coast

Most of Italy’s Ligurian Coast is breathtaking.

The capital of Italy’s Liguria district is Genoa. I visited it, but, despite it being on the coast,  you won’t find any journal entries on Genoa here because I created a separate category for it. I made that a subcategory of Italy, rather than a subcategory of this one.

I reserved this category for the smaller towns and cities on and near the coast. I have visited what is arguably the most famous part of the Ligurian coast, Cinque Terre, but that was before I started this travel journal. So, unless I got back there after writing this, you won’t find any Cinque Terre posts linked here.

However, there are a number of other towns on and near the coast that are also beautiful. I visited some. The most famous is Portofino, but I also went to Rapallo (I made that my base), Santa Margherita Ligure, Camogli, and San Fruttuoso

Who knows? Perhaps by the time you read this I’ll have visited other places on the Ligurian Coast. If so, you’ll find entries on them linked here.

This is a subcategory of “Italy” and a sub-subcategory of “Europe.”
