The Liguria region, a very popular tourist destination, is situated in North-Western Italy. The region is divided into 4 provinces: Genoa, Imperia, La Spezia and Savona and it is a mix of Italian culture, entertainment, nature, adventure and more. Among the famous Italian tourist destinations, Liguria is home for the Cinque Terre, Paradise Gulf, Riviera dei Fiori and more. Popular tourist destinations also include Genoa, with its Aquarium, one of the largest in Europe, Sanremo, famous for the Italian Music Festival and the Italian Riviera, where tourists invade it every year for the amazing beaches and deep blue water.
The Cinque Terre is a magnificent place situated on the Italian Riviera and it consists of 5 different villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. They are all part of the first Italian National Park, since 1999.
The Cinque Terre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its importance and that makes it a very popular destination for tourists from all around the world.
One of the interesting facts about the Cinque Terre is that it is one of the very few places around the World where you can't really use your car. It's inaccessible by car, except for a few very narrow roads. In any case, it's best if you travel by train, ferry, plane and, once you're there, on foot.
The Province of Genoa is a province in the Liguria region, formed out of 67 comuni.

Its capital city is Imperia, but the city of San Remo is more populated and probably more famous too. There are four mountain communities in this province, Comunità dell'Olivo, Alta Valle Arroscia, Argentina Armea and Montana Intemelia. Another interesting fact is that Imperia is also known as the Riviera dei Fiori (English: Riviera of flowers), for its many valleys and creeks.
