1-day tour: GOLFO PARADISO

Leaving quite early form our hotel, we reach Camogli, an old maritime village that kept intact its medieval centre, made of high houses, leaning on each other and crossed by climbing alleys, flight of steps and tight arcades.

After visiting the village and the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, decorated with paintings from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, you proceed to the Tirreno Aquarium, located in the only tower left of the Dragone Castle. Later, we head to the interesting Maritime Museum “Gio Bono Ferrari” which exhibits the antique tradition of the town.

At about 11.30 a.m. we board for a suggestive excursion to San Fruttuoso (30 minutes by boat), a small fishing village, where we can visit the homonymous Abbey.

Back in Camogli, a break to enjoy lunch in one of the typical restaurants of the area.

From here we go to Nervi where, walking in the three seafront great parks, we find the Grapallo, Serra and Grimaldi Villas.

The last one is the seat of the Frugone Collection, which brings together several pieces of Italian painters of the nineteenth century.

After visiting the exposition, around 5.30 p.m. going back to Camogli, we stop in Sori and then in Recco where we can taste the famous cheese focaccia, a speciality of the area.

From here we return to our hotel.
