The Riviera di Levante (Rivëa de Levante in Ligurian) is a stretch of Ligurian coast about 81 miles (130 km) long which, together with the Riviera di Ponente, makes up the Ligurian Riviera (sometimes referred to simply as Riviera). It extends from the mouth of the Magra river in the province of La Spezia to the eastern districts of Genoa, although there is a more geographical definition that places the border between the Riviera di Levante and the Riviera di Ponente on the northernmost point of the Ligurian Sea, near the mouth of the Cerusa stream or the Leira stream in Voltri. Consequently, the Riviera di Levante would also include the entire municipal area of ​​Genoa with the exception of the Voltrese hamlets of Crevari and Vesima. It is opposed to the Riviera di Ponente which, again conventionally, extends from Genoa (or from the mouth of the Cerusa stream) to the French border or, more correctly from a geographical point of view, to Cap Martin about 3.1 miles (5 km) west of Menton).
