Genoa is the capital of the Liguria Region, in the northwest of Italy: with its 580.000 inhabitants, it is the sixth-largest Italian city, famous for having one of the most important seaports in the Mediterranean Sea.
Genoa is located in the center of the Ligurian Riviera, a narrow coastal strip in Italy which lies between the Ligurian Sea and the mountain chain formed by the Maritime Alps and the Apennines. As a tourist centre, the Ligurian Riviera benefits from over 300 days of sunshine per year, and is known for its beaches, colorfully painted towns, natural environment, food, and luxury villas and hotels, as well as for its popular resort facilities.
