Liguria, in terms of sea and beaches, it is one of the most chosen Italian destinations. As we have seen, it is well equipped to welcome tourists and enjoys a fabulous sea. Moreover reaching Liguria and getting around it is very simple, thanks to the excellent rail and motorway links that lead from one end of the region to the other. Unfortunately, however, as in many other tourist destinations, a holiday in Liguria is not very cheap. The flights from the main Italian airports are quite expensive in the high season, just think that it starts from at least € 100,00, and the accommodation facilities are no less. In this case it depends a lot on the chosen area, for example in the Cinque Terre a standard room without even breakfast included is between € 70,00 and € 80,00 per night, while if you opt for the coastal areas on the Riviera di Ponente the prices drop between € 40,00 and € 50,00 per night. A valid option for large families and groups of friends is that of renting an entire apartment to share the costs.
