Bordering the French riviera to the north-west, Liguria is a small but densely populated region of Italy. It's steep and rocky coastline leading up to the north-west where the maritime alps lie has left the region with a generally mild climate throughout. This allows for beautiful renaissance botanical gardens to flourish, making them a great attraction for any visitor. This inland greenery is contrasted by a steep coastline scattered with small beaches and coves with cliff faces towering above them. Seafood is one of the wonders of the Mediterranean, however Liguria is also home to the original Genovese Pesto. This salty and nutty basil sauce can be used over Pastas specifically from the region. These include the Trofie - a short, roughly twisted noodle rolled by hand.
