The Italian Riviera is famed for its idyllic harbors, colorful houses and dramatic coastline. Discover the sheer beauty of the numerous scenic bays and wonderful Italian towns on this iconic route.

From San Remo the road takes you along the idyllic Ligurian Sea to Portofino, a picturesque harbor that is often listed as the prettiest in the world. The road follows the sea to Genova, a large Italian city with many historical sights, museums and a labyrinth of backstreets to discover. The road continues along the magnificent turquoise sea, pristine beaches, innumerable harbors, palm trees and colorful medieval towns perched on top of the mountains. Before headed to La Spezia the route takes you through the pearl of this region: Cinque Terre National Park. Cinque Terre is known for the unique setting of five coastal villages. Although the winding road takes you through all the five “Cinque Terre” villages, we recommend you to pick one, park your car there and set out on an exploration of the other villages by foot!
