Best places in Northern Italy

Liguria A region sitting near France at the north-western part of the country, Liguria is considered a safe haven for people who want to find serenity and indulge on the scenic view of its lush landscapes and lovely mountains. Liguria is also close to the Mediterranean Sea that boasts off white sand beaches and golden coastlines, making it a charming escape not just for tourists, but especially for newlywed locals or couples who are travelling together.

The economic center of Liguria is Genoa, which is surrounded by the other three Ligurian provinces, namely La Spezia, Savona and Imperia. Genoa is known to be a melting pot of different cultures and is most usually identified with its unique caruggi, which are narrow streets that line the town. Genoa is further branded by the several magnificent palaces that reflect the architectural patterns of the Renaissance period. Such palaces include Campanella, Spinola di Pellicceria, and Lercari Parodi Palaces. In Italian, you may call them Palazzos.

Genoa is not just for those interested in history and love museums, galleries, and churches. An adventurous person can find something very cool about Genoa’s rugged mountains and gorgeous beaches. If you are the type of tourist who wants some adrenaline rushing through your veins as you explore a place as fabulous as Genoa, here are some things that you can do: you can go hike the remarkable mountains, ride on a horse like Zorro, and explore the underwater life. In Genoa, everything is laid down before you. All you have to do is to pick.

La Spezia is just as stunning with its pristine sand beaches and rich culture. As you lay your eyes on the wide stretch of spectacular villages sitting atop its green lands, you can’t help but to open your mouth in awe and your eyes in shock. Let the colorful scenery entice you as you move from one village to the next. Have you ever seen a place that seems like it has been cut from a panoramic painting? If you haven’t, then this would be your first time. La Spezia is essentially a painting that has come to life.

Right at the heart of Savona province is Albenga, which speaks of rich untainted history and the genuine artistic potentials of Italians. This historical center is home to various museums, galleries and palazzos that you would surely love to visit. Savona is also home to some of the most beautiful places in Italy, such as Laigueglia, known for its fishing industry, Verezzi, which is most famous for its festivals, and Castelvecchio. Bordered by the province of Savona on the right and by France on the left, Imperia is a crossroad of culture, history and all things beautiful. It is truly an empire that speaks of sophistication of the 17th century and stylishness of the modern times. When you visit Imperium, don’t forget to look for Salvini di Pieve di Teco Theater, which is undoubtedly the smallest theater in the whole world. Buy some souvenirs from their shopping areas and don’t forget to pay their beautiful churches a visit.
