Italian Riviera

La dolce vita

The colour-splashed Italian Riviera is one of the most intriguing areas of Italy. Stylish and charming, this small region has found its own place between the French Riviera and Tuscany. An enchanting, nostalgic old-world atmosphere exudes from this coast. Splendid 19th century villas cohabit with medieval towns forming breathtaking scenery. Portofino is the jewel of the Italian Riviera where little has changed from the time when Elizabeth Taylor was vacationing there.
