Cinque Terre and Portofino
Enjoy the beautiful Cinque Terre
Gastronomic hiking on the Cinque Terre
There are a small train and local boats that connect the five villages and together with the guide we will choose one of them on the spot depending on the weather. Instead of a stop for a classic lunch we make a “food walk” where we taste different food products in different places: typical “focaccia” with Ligurian pesto, “farinata” made of chickpeas flour, local wine, vegetable pie and ice cream.
The tour can end with a mini-cruise with an aperitif on board.
Explore the Portofino peninsula
Just over half an hour east of Genoa, with Europe’s largest historic city center and an impressive harbour, the incredibly beautiful Portofino Peninsula extends into the blue Mediterranean Sea. In the corner of the west side you will find the charming little town of Camogli with its pastel-colored houses and a lot of atmosphere. On the other side where the beautiful Bay of Tigullio begins, there are charming seaside resorts like Santa Margherita Ligure and Rapallo with its famous promenades.
Portofino with roots back to the Roman era and a castle built in the 16th century, is located at the very edge of the peninsula. The location of the village is incredibly beautiful with its fishing harbor surrounded by the mountains and has not for nothing became a dear retreat even for famous personalities and luxury tourism during the years.
Well worth a trip is also the monastery of San Fruttuoso di Capodimonte, located in a small bay surrounded by a protected nature and sea area. The monastery was built by the Greek monks in the mid-900s and later taken over by Benedictine monks before it was eventually donated to the state. At the bottom of the ocean in the small bay there is a famous Jesus statue. You can only come to the monastery by boat or with a tough hike over the mountains.
