Stretching between Tuscany and the south of France, the Italian Riviera encompasses the majority of the crescent-shaped Liguria region.
Home to spectacular nature, charming fishing villages and chic resorts, it's little wonder that the area is among the most beloved destinations in Europe. With an abundance of incredible scenery, superb cuisine and the chance to unwind on the picturesque beaches that line the Mediterranean coastline, Italian Riviera holidays are what dreams are made of.
Undoubtedly, the most popular destination for most Italian Riviera tours, the stunning Cinque Terre comprises five idyllic villages carved into rugged cliffs along the coast. Offering pretty beaches and an array of delightful walks, they are perhaps best known for their elegant colourful houses and quaint harbours. Elsewhere, the stylish resort towns of Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure boast marvellous scenery and superb dining options, while the cities of La Spezia and Genoa provide plenty in the way of maritime history and grand piazzas. Discover the very best of this enchanting region, from impressive palaces to sleepy seaside villages, on our Italian Riviera escorted tours.
A meal in the Italian Riviera is best enjoyed with a spectacular view.
Happily, there are ample opportunities to take advantage of some exquisite Italian vistas. Some of the best scenic eateries include Nessun Dorma in Manarola, Langosteria in Paraggi and La Torre in Vernazza.
For a uniquely Ligurian sweet treat, be sure to try latte dolce fritto, or sweet fried milk. This typical snack is made by covering hardened custard in breadcrumbs then frying it for a warm and oozing dessert.
A visit to the Italian Riviera calls for a sampling of Buridda. This Ligurian seafood stew was traditionally a favourite among fishermen who would use leftover fish to make the dish, but today it can be found in restaurants across the region.
