Your private tour to the highlights of Genoa and the Italian Riviera. Get the most in an experience designed for your stay.


Your private tour takes you to discover the surroundings of your ship's port of call: Portofino and the Italian Riviera plus Genoa.
We meet at Genoa's Maritime Terminal and by private car we reach the Riviera by highway and coastal road.
Driving along the roman via Aurelia you enjoy the view on sea cliffs and on a promontory rich in vegetation and dotted by exclusive mansions and traditional houses.
We pass through the charming coastal village of Santa Margherita: not only the gate to Portofino but a place of painted colorful "trompe l'oeil" facades and unexpected baroque churches.
We visit Portofino, one of the wonders of the world, wrapped by the green and the blue of a breathtaking nature and the sparkling boutiques.
A pause and a snack will be done during the tour.
Back to Genoa and after a panoramic driving, we reach the medieval part of the city where we see the house of Christopher Columbus, Palazzo Ducale, Piazza De Ferrari, Cathedral San Lorenzo and Rolli palaces before driving back to the port.

A Recent Review of this tour

It is my pleasure to give my highest recommendation to Sandra. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and pleasant. But, more than that, she brings with her a warmth of personality that makes one feel like they are spending the day with a good friend. Furthermore, Sandra was very perceptive and sensitive to our needs -- be it tasting local cuisine, getting the best photograph, or finding the most memorable sights. One thing's for sure: The next time I'm in Italy, Sandra is my first call!
