Berths for sale or for rental on the Italian Riviera

What is often referred to as the “Italian Riviera” is Coast of Liguria, which stretches over 150 miles (almost 250 kilometres) from the Gulf of La Spezia and Tuscany to the East, across to Ventimiglia and the border with France, with Genoa at the centre. Though it is connected to the French Riviera to the West, the Ligurian Sea is a destination of its own offering a variety of locations to cruise to.            


The Riviera dei Fiori
To the West of Genoa is the Riviera Ponente (the “Western” Riviera), traditionally landlocked between the Alps and the sea, with the popular coastal towns of Bordighera, San Remo, Imperia, Santo Stefano, Albenga, Savona, and Varazze, to name only some of them. It is also frequently referred to as the Riviera dei Fiori, due to the growing of flowers which is one of the areas key activities, besides tourism. This pride of Liguria, of growing and exporting flowers across Europe, has in some parts also redrawn its coast’s appearance from the sea, displaying lines of greenhouses along the slopes, elegantly reflecting the sun.

The Riviera Levante
To the East of Genoa lies the Riviera Levante (the “Eastern” Riviera, or “of the rising sun”), is one of Italy’s natural and architectural jewels, with the famous Cinque Terre region, with its secluded villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare, just East of La Spezia. Further West is the world famous Portofino and the Gulf o Tigulio, with Rapallo, Chiavari, Lavagna, and its endless beaches all the way to Sestri Levante.

Genoa, heart of the Riviera
Genoa is the centre of this coastline: As well as being the geographical centre of this coastline, Genoa can be considered as its historical heart. During a long period of its history this region (as well as some areas of France, East of Antibes) were neither Italian nor French. They were predominantly “Genoese”, or “Ligurian”, a world of small ports and villages in Mediterranean sun, with each locality having a strong identity. It is in this context that most of the Riviera’s lifestyle and its “dolce vita” came to be.

Marinas in Liguria today
For most of the late 20th century, marina construction had been very limited in the region of Liguria. Though there was clearly overwhelming demand for mooring facilities locally, but also generally, in the Western Mediterranean, many new marina projects struggled for decades to obtain permission to build. From 2000 to 2010, many of these projects came to life, providing for the needs of Italy’s densest cruising area and anticipating the requirements of the growing superyacht and megayacht demand. Consequently, nowadays, Liguria is a cruising destination full of opportunity. If you are new to the area, it is still possible to rent berths in many marinas, and if you are looking to stay or to invest in a long term mooring, there are many locations to choose from.
