Riviera dei Fiori

The Riviera dei Fiori (Flowers Riviera) is the wonderful part of the coast, along the Western Riviera of Liguria, that goes from Andora to the French border, near the city of Ventimiglia.

It is characterized by sandy and golden beaches and expanses in which grey and rocky cliffs face the sea, that here is lukewarm also during the winter, and by a hilly hinterland that arrives near the sea, and that was once cultivated, as olivegrove.

Typical of the Riviera dei Fiori is the extremely mild, little rainy and very sunny climate, due to the presence of the Marine Alps that protect Liguria from the North winds and to the sea that washes its coasts, that has allowed the development of the cultivation of the flowers, that has given the name to all the area.
