The trail starts opposite the entrance to the harbor of Santa Margherita Ligure (behind the gas station) in Montebello hill, a road that winds through the house for about 300 meters then becoming a mule track, a trip of about 20 ', which after a final stretch through the fields, ending at the chapel of "Madonna della neve" in Nozarego.

Here it goes for 100 meters until you reach the paved road to the left, the cobbled path that goes up through villas with gardens and stone walls joining, after a while, the road from the Nozarego's Church to continue on the plain overlooking the Gulf and on "Abbey of Cervara".

This leads to village Cappelletta of Gave, which owes its name to the presence of a small church, a crossroads of many paths. a very steep descent (in the beginning there is a tap for drinking water) down through the cobbled and reed bands and then continue with a staircase between high walls, after about 20 ', comes out in the parking lot of Paraggi. Of note in this diversion route for the Abbey of Cervara (in the San Joachim taking the footpath on the left one forward in the middle of a forest and a descent of 10 'minutes you reach the entrance of the Abbey, a few meters over the coastal Santa Margherita-Portofino).

At the end of the small settlement with a staircase leads to the pedestrian-Paraggi Portofino, a path, very well maintained, paved road that runs parallel to the road surrounded by greenery. After some ups and downs en route goes past some houses mainly in the plain, as you get closer, the view over the village becomes more and more exciting.

The route ends at the parish of St. Martin, the church striped yellow and gray at the entrance to Portofino.
