Liguria

Liguria is a coastal region of north-western Italy; its capital is Genoa. The region is popular with tourists for its beaches, towns and cuisine. Liguria is the original source of pesto, one of the most popular sauces in Italian cuisine, made with fresh basil, pine kernels, olive oil, garlic and Parmesan cheese. The Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast in the Liguria region, part of the Italian Riviera, and comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I am renovating my house in the Borgo of Piana Crixia. I would like a quote from a plumber in the area- even from Cairo Montenotte which is nearby. I don’t speak Italian. Please help?
