A private tour looking for true life in "ligurian" style.
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.
Your private tour starts at Santa Margherita with a visit to the village, with its baroque parish church and the colorful facades houses.
A short walk takes us to the local railway station and in a few minutes train travel we arrive in Camogli on the opposite side of the Portofino Promontory.
Walking down to the medieval alleys we enter the very heart of the village with its fishing port, parish church, castle, and we discover the real atmosphere of Liguria. A local snack will be provided before we wend our way back to the train station and on to Santa Margherita.
This tour can be carried out by taxi or private car or minivan. Pick up point can be quoted from Portofino pier.
A boat ride can be arranged and quoted on request.
