What are the main towns in the Italian Riviera?

La Riviera ligure is an Italian equivalent of 'Italian Riviera'. In the word by word translation, the feminine definite article 'la' means 'the'. The feminine gender noun 'Riviera' means 'coast, seashore'. The adjective/noun 'ligure' means 'Ligurian'. The phrase is pronounced 'lah ree-vee-EH-rah lee-GOO-ray'.
