With its approximately 4,660 miles of coastline, Italy is a paradise of countless gulfs, coves, inlets and long, sandy beaches. From Liguria to the Maritime Alps, the foothills of the Alpine Mountains push out and brush the waves that lap at the Italian Riviera. With their high and rocky cliffs, these rugged coasts are rich with gorgeous nooks, crannies and deep, deep sea-beds. The marvels of nature do not stop there. This area is a paradise for numerous animal species and for humans alike: whether you want to watch nature or seek the thrill of sea life, you can enjoy a great variety of amazing marine experiences.
