A private tour looking for true life in "ligurian" style-pick up & drop off in Portofino
Your private tour takes you to discover the true ligurian life close to the world famous Portofino. We visit Santa Margherita Ligure, not only the "gate" to Portofino, a lovely village by the Tigullio Gulf, pleasant to be discovered in your private tour with a local guide. Afterwards we visit Camogli, the gem of the Paradise Gulf, standing at the other side of the Portofino Promontory. It is a line of pastel colored sea-front facades and green shutters, hanging fishing nets, brightly colored fishing boats, a sun-beaten promenade, a baroque parish church and marble Madonna's votive offering niches, shady cafes and traditional bakeries
We meet at Portofino floating pier and then we walk to Piazza Martiri dell'Olivetta ( approx. 0, 12 miles) for an introduction of the village and explanations of the highlights. Following the pedestrian alley we meet our driver at Piazza della Libertà, the upper square ( approx. more 0, 12 miles) . Making our way to the highway by a panoramic costal driving, we pass through the town of Rapallo ( passing by the villages of Paraggi, Santa Margherita and San Michele ). A photo stop at Rapallo can be possible. We visit Camogli, the village of the fishermen. Our driver takes us up to the limit of the pedestrian area. Walking along the medieval alleys we enter the very heart of the village with its fishing port, parish church, castle. The hairpin turns road across the Portofino Promontory is a sequence of breathtaking views of the gulf from above and will take us to Santa Margherita by the sea. We visit the village before drive back to Portofino.
