The Italian Riviera, or Ligurian Riviera is the narrow coastal strip between the Ligurian Sea and the mountain chain of the Maritime Alps and the Apennines.
Sweeping down from the chic Côte d’Azur to the enchanting seaside towns of Tuscany, the Italian Riviera embodies charismatic elegance and old-world glamour. Once the inspiration for some of Italy’s greatest artists, beguiled by its stunning landscapes, it now combines a heavenly cocktail of Mediterranean culture, antiquated charm and modern luxury.
Escape to the glistening, flower-strewn shores of the Western Mediterranean, you'll discover Portofino's exclusive charms and Monte Carlo's glitz and glamour, and take in the leafy coves, ancient hill-top villages and sunny vineyards of the Cinque Terre - five exquisite villages that hug the cliffs along the pretty Ligurian coast.
This year is going to be filled with exciting VIP events on the Italian Riviera. Following is a small selection of them, which we feel might help to make your time there even more unforgettable.
