Your guide will meet you at the pier in Savona and after a beautiful panoramic drive, passing Genoa, you'll reach Portofino where you'll enjoy a private walking tour. Portofino has long been and still remains a capital of high society and the jet set, but it is also so much more than that. It is a bay and village of astonishing beauty with an important natural pier. It offers lush Mediterranean hillside forests and a charming village loaded with and history and beauty. Portofino began as a Phoenician port, then was ruled by Rome and finally served the Republic of Genoa. It is a cultural meeting point and has been loved by writers and philosophers who have lived here.

Your walking tour of Portofino includes the Oratory of Santa Maria Assunta, where it is possible to see the traditional Cristi, a huge Crucifix that is carried through the town by the faithful during religious processions. You will also visit the church of San Giorgio on top of the promontory, with its extraordinary view down onto the village. You will walk to the lighthouse, through the verdant Regional Park and up to a terrace outlook facing the tranquil Tigullio Gulf. By the time you have finished your guided tour you too will understand why this place is so highly regarded and famous the world over.

This afternoon you'll drive to Camogli, a very typical fishing village on the Tigullio coast. The houses painted in strong colors will make you think that you have stepped into your favorite painting. You enjoy a short walking tour and then you have free time here to enjoy a Ligurian lunch (meal not included). We recommend some of the local specialties such as pasta col pesto, an absolute must if you enjoy pesto, focaccia di Recco or any of the local fish dishes.

Please Note: It is possible to substitute Camogli with the town of Recco if you wish, or to make 2 shorter stops in both.
