In Praise of Porcini: Liguria’s Tasty Autumn Treat

Even after a hot and stormy summer, in the last few days of October, people in villages across Liguria will be praying for the sunshine to last. For with the first frosts in the mountains and woodlands of the region comes the end of a period of gastronomic gold: the porcini season. Years ago, in […]

Digital Diary Liguria – The Adventure

There’s an Italian, a Frenchman and a Spaniard… nooooo, I’m not telling you a joke, this is what the ‘Liguria Digital Diary’ was like. We chose, from 80 video makers, 10 young people from all over the world. Let’s get to know them: first three Italians who now live abroad: @Angelo (Paris), @Filippo (Sydney) and […]

Cinque Terre born again

25th October 2011: Tourism and upkeep of the area. The images you have seen over the past few days mix feelings and time. They are the same, even if fortunately with less terrible consequences, than those we saw a few years ago in the Cinque Terre and nearby Valle del Vara. They are images of […]

Cinque Terre: joy and emotion

Cinque Terre is synonymous with joy and emotion. Excursions by land and sea allow you to enter the territory.

If the Acquario gives an encore

Betty, Robin and Mia: the three most famous dolphins of the moment. Perhaps because they have been long awaited, like stars.

The Grotta dell’Edera

From Finale Ligure, I take the road for the town of Calice and follow the hairpin turns among the vineyards and olive groves. The road now becomes tight and winding to the end of a small valley, a secret valley between walls of white limestone which jut out dizzyingly for hundreds of metres towards the […]

Rediscover Cinque Terre

Guest post by Christine Godfrey Fall in love with a place and a man. Fourteen years have passed and now my home is among these hills. I was born in a place of immense space and great convenience, but to set up home I chose a small corner, far away, inconvenient, unique. Americans love the […]

What makes a Ligurian summer?

I’ve travelled to Liguria in every season of the year, and the summer is when Liguria seems to be at its most exuberant, outgoing best. All along the coast, towns and villages are bursting with life and an all-pervading enjoyment of the sea and the sun. From late spring onwards, this sense of fun gets […]

Liguria that changes your life

Good opportunities find it difficult to escape me. It is with the honed instinct of a girl in search of new experiences that I find myself at dawn one morning with a very talented video maker, Alessandro Beltrame, shooting a video on the outdoors in the far west of Liguria. Alessandro, between you and me, […]
