To the north, the region of Liguria is bordered by the mountain ranges of the Alps and the Apennines. Liguria is one of the smallest regions in Italy and divided into the Riviera di Ponente and the Riviera di Levante. The regional city of Genoa is located between the two regions. Other well-known cities include Sanremo, Portofino and Savona. The region is particularly famous for the olive oil made from the Taggiasca olives from Imperia. Wines from Liguria are also known nationwide. Food plays an important role in Liguria too. The Pesto alla genovese and also the ravioli come from this northern Italy region. Both a beach holiday and a holiday in the mountains are possible due to the diverse environment of the area.
