Camogli is a delightful fishing village on the Ligurian Riviera di Levante, protected behind the promontory of Portofino, which allows it to enjoy a mild climate all year round .
The village consists of a pedestrian promenade, bordered by tall, colorful houses, which, in a succession of restaurants, bars and shops original comes to the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta , and then the harbor crowded with fishing vessels and boats to tourists.
From this point, by sea, it is indeed possible to reach many places like Punta Chiappa, San Fruttuoso and, with day trips to the Cinque Terre.
A must see is the castle of Dragonara , the fortress built around the thirteenth century, nestled on the beach that also hosts an interesting archaeological museum (the aquarium, this until a few years ago, he was transferred to Genoa).
Camogli is the starting point of many direct paths to the Park of Portofino; a trail from the parking area up to San Rocco di Camogli, where you can go to Portofino Vetta, Pietre Strette, San Fruttuoso, Punta Chiappa .
During the summer months and on weekends, it is difficult to park your car; most of the parking is reserved for residents and parking spaces available to tourists (paying) is often full, so we strongly advise public transport.
Camogli is well served by trains, buses and boats.
