The Idyllic Italian Riviera & Magnificent Monaco

The Idyllic Italian Riviera & Magnificent Monaco

The Riviera dei Fiori is a beautiful part of the Ligurian Riviera encompassing dramatic cliffs, lush forests and charming old hilltop towns hugging the Mediterranean coast from San Remo to the Gulf of Genoa.

The delightful resort of Diano Marina, with its sweeping bay backed by hillsides clad in citrus groves and pine trees, is smaller than the nearby resorts of Alassio and San Remo and is the ideal base to explore the coastline with its enchanting towns and villages.
