Liguria is the ideal destination for those who do not want to give up fitness even when on holiday.
From the deepest sea beds to the highest mountain peaks, this region offers many opportunities for sports holidays.
Dive into the bluest waters
Spectacular marine flora and fauna, inlets and craggy seabeds, fascinating wrecks full of mystery: the Ligurian Sea conceals an amazing underwater world that attracts large numbers of scuba divers, from beginners to experts, every year.
There are plenty of qualified professional diving centres offering assistance, equipment and advice on the best dive sites.
Sail with fair winds
Pietra Ligure is the ideal place for all sail sports.
Especially in the afternoon, when the Ponentino breeze is blowing with just the right intensity.
Bikes and mountain bike: just get pedalling!
Liguria has loads of great paths and trails for bike tourism and mountain biking.
The temperate climate, warm in the summer and mild in the winter, the rolling landscape with its “ups and downs” and the wonderful natural scenery attract professionals and beginners alike who come here all year round to cycle on the local roads and trails, whether pushing their limits or in search of hidden beauty spots.
Free Climbing: the sky’s the limit!
If you like free-climbing, the Riviera Ligure with its rocky walls and the cliffs overlooking the sea is the right place for you.
If you’re a bit rusty or a beginner, there are plenty of climbing gyms where you can get into shape before tackling real cliffs or learn the tricks of the trade.
Paragliding: suspended between the sea and the earth
If you’re a paraglider you’ll find a host of wonderful launch points in the vicinity (from Bric Pratello to Monte Carmo) where you can fly over marvellous landscapes and land near the sea.
Let the beauty of Riviera Ligure work its magic on you!
