Liguria is the region where the Italian coast curves round to meet Provence; it's a narrow, crescent-shaped area where the beaches are backed by the mountains of the Apennines. The coastline is known as the Italian Riviera, a series of towns and ports which have historically always looked more to the sea than inland. The 5 colorful fishing villages of the Cinque Terre, as well as stylish Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure, are at the southern end of Liguria and are very popular with visitors.
