Pictures of Liguria, Italy that’ll make you fall in love with the Italian Riviera. See hidden gems Italians love to inspire your next trip.

Liguria Italy Pictures

Those familiar with Liguria might notice a stunning lack of images of Portofino or Cinque Terre in today’s Pictures of Italy photo gallery. While omitting two of the most adored hotspots along the Italian Riviera might seem like a huge oversight, it’s really not. Paolo’s pictures of Portofino and pictures of Cinque Terre were so stunning they deserved their own galleries.

Instead, today’s Pictures of Italy gallery includes places loved by Italians that tend to be lesser-known to tourists visiting Italy for the first time. It also includes a few hidden gems in Liguria like the ancient town of Sarzana and the Bay of Silence in Sestri Levante which lies just 30 miles from Genoa, Italy.

Gulf of Poets to Sestri Levante

Lerici reminds me of a more down-to-earth, liveable, and affordable Portofino. The moment I sat down for lunch by the water in Lerici I said to Paolo “You know we have to come back and spend a week right here in Lerici next time right?” While it might seem impossible to imagine driving away from such a beautiful coast on purpose, just 20 minutes by car from La Spezia is Sarzana, an ancient city with a fascinating history. There is even documentation from a peace treaty between Sarzana and Luni that places Italian poet and politician Dante Alighieri as a resident of Sarzana in 1306.

An intact 16th-century wall with four towers surrounding Sarzana makes it an easy place to explore on foot. Between Firmafede and Sarzanello Fortresses (pictured below), there is good reason to make Sarzana a day trip from the coast of Liguria. Without further ado, here are our favorite pictures including two art prints by Paolo Ferraris inspired by Liguria. All Liguria art prints for sale start at $23.99. Customizable framed and unframed versions are available. Simply click one of the art prints below for details or contact Paolo directly at Paolo@ALORConsulting.com.
