Two pearls of the Ligurian Coast

Since the Fifties Portofino has been visited by many famous people, curious to visit the tiny fishing town known all over the world. Santa Margherita followed the destiny of Portofino and started to host people from all over the world in its beautiful hotels and villas. Traditions, nature and history.


First af all we will visit Santa Margherita with is gorgeous Baroque church, the Villa Durazzo sorrounded by a panoramic garden, the fishing harbour and the fish market. By boat we will reach Portofino, along the steep coast where to admire villas and gardens. In Portofino we will walk to San Giorgio church and through the narrow alleys (if you like we even walk to the Brown Castle). At the end of the tour we can go back together to Santa Margherita or I will book a taxi or a boat back for you.
