The capital city is Genoa, known for its historical port and architecture. The region offers breathtaking mountain views, beaches, and plenty of activities like rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, sailing, and swimming.

One must-see destination in Liguria is Cinque Terre National Park which encompasses five stunning fishing villages perched along rugged cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Visitors can explore old churches, vineyards producing local wines from nearby slopes, or take boat tours to see wildlife like seals and dolphins!

An interesting historical fact about Liguria was that it served as a crossroads for different cultures throughout history such as Greeks, Romans and Lombards who left their mark in artworks found throughout the region.
