The Ligurian region is characterised by scenery rich in natural beauty, where the land meets the sea, creating an incredible variety of ecosystems throughout the territory. The region also boasts popular tourist areas such as Cinque Terre, the Gulf of Poets, the Gulf of Tigullio, the Riviera dei Fiori and the Riviera delle Palme. In addition to these you can visit a host of towns featuring characteristic houses and the gentle rhythms of the countryside, with the typical architecture of rural villages, often of medieval origin, varying from the west to the east of the region.
Among the wonders that surround the Genoa – Sant’Anna Golf Club we must mention the Beigua Park, the largest natural park in Liguria, located just behind the golf course.
A visit to even a short stretch of this spectacular balcony-like formation of mountains overlooking the sea will encompass landscapes of outstanding beauty where nature, history, culture and ancient traditions blend in an extraordinarily valuable and interesting natural environment. The park boasts a dense hiking network covering about 500 km, with itineraries suitable for all levels, amidst breathtaking views of the Ligurian Gulf.
