The Italian Riviera, synonymous with the Ligurian region, is famous for its natural and cultural heritage. It provides a wide variety of landscapes shaped by the Alps and the Apennines with steep hills and sheer cliffs into the sea. This genuinely historical destination is also a fabulous way to experience the dolce vita by exploring Renaissance elegant palazzi (palaces) and austere churches with lavish interiors, or by tasting the local cuisine after a swim.
Anchored in Italy’s famed crescent of the Mediterranean coast, Genoa nestles in the region’s best natural harbor. It is the perfect place for a luxury yacht charter in Italy. Known as La Superba (the Superb One), the city is famous for its naval prowess and ruled over one of the most impressive maritime empires in medieval Europe. Genoa is a Unesco heritage site. It is also the birthplace of blue jeans and Christopher Columbus.
This thin strip of land embraces a huge amphitheater for luxury yacht charter. This utterly charming location is celebrated by poets and painters alike, whose creativity comes to light among the vines, the oaks, and the olive trees as they mingle with the scent of the ocean.
Genoa is the home of the largest Italian aquarium, and San Remo has, for centuries, been the main focal point for sailors on the Italian Riviera. Elegance is the name of the game at the Sanremo Casino, a luxurious Art Nouveau building, which has hosted many festivals and many fashionable celebrities. Enjoy the sunset on the stack of colorful houses tipping into the sea while sipping cocktails or a Spritz (aperitive).
