  • Using one word to describe the experience - difficult. We knew that the drive in would be narrow, winding roads, however, this was enhanced by the volume of traffic that made the trip in seem...

  • Portofino is beautiful but it is very small and looks similar to all other towns in Liguria. It is famous for the rich people I think. It is expensive to go there. I advice staying somewhere near...

  • A truly stunning park, on par with the Cinque Terre one, which one cannot avoid visiting during a holiday in Liguria. It comprises several well preserved paths, accurately signalled, which cross typical Mediterranean vegetation and lead to breathtaking panoramic points or beaches with clear water. The places I recommend above all are the war bunkers ('Batterie'), where incredible sunsets over the sea can be admired, the small rocky peninsula of Punta Chiappa, and the ancient abbey and beach in San Fruttuoso, where the famous underwater statue Cristo degli Abissi also is. The park can be reached by the train stations of Camogli or Santa Margherita: some paths start from these two towns, and otherwise it is possible to take a bus to either San Rocco or Portofino or a boat to Punta Chiappa and San Fruttuoso. If it's summer, take a swimsuit (and expect a bit of crowd in the most popular and touristic locations, San Fruttuoso and Portofino, especially on weekends). Refer to the website of the park for a detailed explanation of the paths.
  • Amazing but underrated place. We haven't met a lot of tourists (which is actually cool). The view is breathtaking. Just take a look at these photos and imagine yourself beeing there. My mind was blown. If you love the nature, I totally recommand !
