Villas and Apartments on the Italian Riviera (Liguria)
Mountains drop into the azure sea; brightly painted, unspoiled fishing villages dot the coastline; sailboats bob at their moorings; and steep hills are terraced with olive groves and flowers. This is the scenery of “Enchanted April.” The mountains seem at first to be snow-caped but are really showing their treasure of pure white marble. Hike in the Cinque Terre, visit the Carrara marble quarries, take a private boat trip along the cliffs, dine on fersh fish or splurge in Portofino. Rent a boat and stop at sandy beaches accessible only by boat. Explore the city of Genoa, Italy’s largest port. Think of Liguria for marvelous fresh fish, pesto, ivory, filigree work, lace, damask, and velvet.
