This part of Liguria is a fascinating mixture of peculiar features, tourist attractions, unspoiled mountain landscapes and cutting-edge urban settlements.
The geographic layout of the Province of Genoa is similar to a mosaic: in few kilometres you ascend from the seaside to the Apennine peaks, up and down, across parallel narrow valleys and hilly landscapes.
The urban settlements fit perfectly to the shape of the landscape, therefore you can find not only enchanting tourist seaside resorts on the coast but also genuine rural, pasturing - and recently also tourist - villages in the inland areas, which join homogenously with the settlements, once holiday resorts of the Genoese families.
On the one hand, the challenge for the visitor of Genoa and its Province is to discover gradually its distinctive traditions, cookery secrets, artistic and natural beauties.
On the other hand, the challenge for the territory itself is instead to let its secret places and treasures be discovered and enjoyed and to let its breathtaking beauties be praised uphill and down dale far beyond a first glance!
Just “round the corner” you’ll find always an extraordinary secret to unveil … a reminder of the initiative of the inhabitants, of their perseverance in keeping past memories alive, of their total commitment in offering hospitality and – obviously – of the gifts of Nature!
