Portofino, the pearl of the Tigullio Gulf, is famous all over the world, and has always been a privileged destination for quality tourism, which also attracts international celebrities.
The Piazzetta is the heart and symbol, with its colourful houses, the cafés and the boutiques with their “dolce vita” air; along the Umberto I Pier are the luxurious yachts of wealthy tourists.
The destination is also suitable for active tourism: we are inside the Portofino Regional Nature Park, which offers dozens of hiking trails overlooking the sea with breath-taking views, such as the Cala dell’Oro and the small bay of San Fruttuoso , with its famous Abbey and the Christ of the Abyss.
Yet the Tigullio Gulf is also fascinating for its culture, well-being, sports and food; emotions to enjoy at every level.
Among the localities in the area, to be noted are Recco , with its unforgettable cheese flat bread, Camogli , famous for its colourful homes on the seafront, Santa Margherita Ligure, a trendy little town that imported the Milanese fashion for aperitifs, Rapallo, a renowned holiday destination during the Belle Époque between the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century: all the picturesque seaside villages with traditional alleyways and beautiful marinas with fishermen’s boats.
Manifestations and events, more modern or more traditional, make these magnificent places alive in the summer and even in the winter. All you need for a holiday to remember!
