Rhode Island girl touring one coastal region (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

riviera

Here is my best explanation:

'coastal region' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'rhode island girl touring one' is the subsidiary indication.

'rhode island' becomes 'ri'.

'girl' becomes 'vera' (**).

'touring' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).

'vera' placed around 'i' is 'viera'.

'ri'+'viera'='riviera'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for riviera that I've seen before include "Mediterranean playground of the rich", "Coast of S. France/Italy", "Resort area", "I arrive at rich resort in Southern France", "Mediterranean coastal region", "Mediterranean French/Italian coastline", "holiday destination", "Coastal area between Cannes and Italy", "I arrive at southern resort area in France" and "French Mediterranean holiday area".)
