The region is famous for more than an MTB tour in Liguria, there’s Genova the regional capital, its history and the beaches just to mention a few. Genoa was once racing for the title of “the greatest trade hub of Europe” and today it’s the sixth largest city in Italy and the busiest port in the Mediterranean Sea. Parts of the city have been recognized by UNESCO and most of it is good to go on a bike.
The rich history of the city and surrounding region is most well-known for the period when it boasted the Republic of Genoa from 1005 to 1797. As the so-called Maritime Republic - alongside with Pisa, Venice, and Amalfi – trading, banking, and shipbuilding made up for most of the city-state’s income, and at one point made possible to own the largest and most powerful navy in the Mediterranean.
Shipbuilding and seafaring culture must have plenty of waterfronts, and so do Liguria. The 350-kilometer coastline is mostly rocky, and high, except for the two natural harbours of Genoa and La Spezia. The seafront is scattered with small beaches – some of with are interconnected with an MTB tour in Liguria – such as Finale Ligure, Saracen Bay, Balzi Rossi and many many more.
