Liguria is a land where the mountain rises directly up from the sea extending until Piemonte, in mountain valleys, much of which is National Park. There is no industry from Nice in the South of France until Savona, a vast distance of unpolluted mountains, with rich river valleys and dramatic panoramas over the Mediterranean below. This natural landscape, once the coast is left behind, has been left untouched, the countryside is rich, with the characteristic olive groves on terraced land with old stone walls being the most significant aspect of the landscape.
Nature abounds with wild alpine flowers, the much researched funghi porcini *wild mushrooms and frutti di bosco, small wild strawberries and raspberries. Very marked are the beautiful mountain streams which tumble over granite boulders and create huge and deep rock pools, which are wonderful for swimming in summer. It is in no sense an arid and dry landscape, but rather verdently green with an abundance of flowers and fauna. These mountains are full of the characteristic medieval villages of Liguria, they were always built on rock, taking the high ground and using a defensive position to defend against continous invasion.
