The area of Liguria is a fantastic area for solo/single travellers....on the coast line there are several towns in walking reach that creates a dynamic environment, alongside with fantastic beaches. Its full of fascinating historic and crosscultural activites that makes the area an interesting spot to visit. Highly recommendable!
