Bed-and-Breakfast Liguria

Italian nature at the palm of your hands

The first national park in Italy is the Cinque Terre national Park in Liguria. Even though it is the smallest park, it is considered one of the most beautiful in Italy. It comprises a cliff seashore area with many small picturesque towns on top of the cliffs. Except for the amazing nature which you can explore in this place where the mountains meet the sea, you can also learn more about ecotourism. The Park Organization puts a lot of effort into the conservation of the traditional vegetation in the region, therefore numerous sustainable tourism policies are applied. The park is also listed in the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Bergeggi Regional Nature Reserve is another pearl on the Italian coast – a splendid place on the Italian Riviera. Bergeggi is an island very close to the mainland shore and the locals have managed to preserve the Roman and Medieval remains on it, creating an amazing nature with a historical importance. There are numerous caves to explore, including the Cave of Sirens and the seas cave, both of which are stunning to visit.

Activities

Cinque Terre National Park provides numerous possibilities to its visitors for a day full of activities. Here, you can combine a short hike with the amazing views of high cliffs above the sea with small villages on top of them. There are almost 50 trails on the premises of the national park and our favorite is the Riomaggiore – Portovenere, on which you will have a chance to view the whole coastal panorama of the national park.

The most famous trail is the Monterosso – Vernazza, which crosses vineyards and citrus orchards and leads you to some of the best views of Vernazza and its harbor. Bear in mind that for the sake of conservation of the territory, a small fee for hiking this route has been established (€7,50/day).

Except for exploring the mountains around the beaches, you can also enjoy the weather on some of the beaches themselves. There are rocky or sandy beaches, all of which are extremely beautiful with clean blue water. Some of the best beaches are Bagni San Giuseppe, where you can also practice many watersports, and Baia dei Saraceni – a more peaceful beach area with beautiful white sand and warm turquoise waters.
