LIGURIA TRAVEL INFORMATION AND TOURISM SUGGESTIONS
If you have ever driven from Nice to the Cinque Terre in a vintage Beetle you'll soon discover its a very long way indeed. Best to take the foot off the pedal and stop off along the way.

The Priamar Fortress was immediately built on the 'roccia' to keep an eye on the burghers. Today, it is a…
