Il Porticciolo di Camogli

Camogli is a delightful fishing village on the Ligurian Riviera di Levante, protected behind by the Portofino promontory, which allows it to enjoy a mild climate all year round.

The town consists of a pedestrian promenade, framed by tall colored houses, which, in a succession of restaurants, bars and original shops, descends towards the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta arriving at the small harbor crowded with fishing boats and tourist boats.

From here it is possible to reach many places by sea such as Punta Chiappa, San Fruttuoso di Camogli and, with day trips, the Cinque Terre .

Worth a visit is the Castle della Dragonara , the fortress built around the 13th century perched on the sea which also houses an interesting archaeological museum.

Camogli is the starting point of numerous paths leading to the Park of Portofino; from the car park a mule track climbs up to San Rocco di Camogli, from where you can continue to Portofino Vetta, Pietre Strette, San Fruttuoso, Punta Chiappa.

During the summer months and on weekends, it can be difficult to find free parking spaces; Most of the car parks are reserved for residents and the only one available to tourists (for a fee) is often full, so public transport is highly recommended.

Camogli is well served by trains, buses and boats.
