Italian Riviera

The Italian Riviera, also known as Ligurian Riviera or Genoa and the Riviera is the colorful Italian shoreline of the Genoa Gulf in the Ligurian Sea which extends from the Gulf of Poets and Cinque Terre to San Remo and the French border. Among the most famous Ports/Cities are: Genova, Portovenere, La Spezia, Porto Fino, Cinque Terre, Rapallo, Sanremo, Bordighera and Lerici.

Cinque Terre (meaning “Five Villages”) is listed under the  UNESCO World  Heritage and includes five little picturesque towns: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Cornelia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.


When chartering a yacht in the Italian Riviera, you will most likely be boarding in the city of Genoa where from the very first moment en route you will soak up La dolce Vita.

The glamorous corner dictates Mainsail’s at-a-glance. In small yet magical Porto Fino surrounded by all that chic Boutiques you will inhale that Italian Atmosphere and immerse yourself in the scene when Richard Burton proposed to Elizabeth Taylor at Belmont Hotel Splendido while  overlooking at the glittering Puny’s harbor.
