Here's a rare aerial look at a tiny island off the coast of Italy's Ligurian Coast.  It's called Bergeggi, and it sits in the Ligurian Sea just offshore from a town of the same name.  The island is just a few acres - .1 square km, or about .03 square miles.  Nevertheless, it's home to the ruins of a monastery which was built here in the 10th century AD.  The island and adjacent coastline are part of Savona, one of the four provinces of the official region of Liguria.

Beautiful Liguria


Contributor Tibaltlavega created this stunning drone video of the Ligurian coast in northern Italy.  It opens with a spectacular shot of Portofino, perhaps the most glamourous spot on the Italian Riviera.  Portofino sits at the tip of a small peninsula jutting into the Ligurian sea, just a bit to the east of the Ligurian capital Genoa.  It's been extremely fashionable since it inspired the 1922 bestselling novel The Enchanted April by Elizabeth Arnim, which was subsequently adapted as a screenplay in the 1990's.
