private tour with Rapallo, Santa Margherita Ligure and Camogli options


We meet in La Spezia and transfer to Santa Margherita Ligure, a charming seaside town with a very relaxing atmosphere. Here, we either stroll along the sea (ca 60 minutes) or take a 15-minute boat ride to Portofino, explore its harbor, the narrow streets, the fortress and wonderful ice cream, gossip about the rich and famous, and enjoy the atmosphere. We then take a boat to San Fruttuoso, a charming hidden harbour with monastery where we have lunch. After lunch, another boat takes us to Camogli, a colorful town with lively seafront stroll, a fortress and typical architecture to delight the eye. We return to La Spezia by train.
