Two parking spaces are included.
In the whole Riviera, Camogli is one of the most unique locations: it kept up the ancient maritime Ligurian tradition over the centuries. Camogli litterally means house (“Ca”) of wives (“mogli”), referring to all sailors’ wives waiting at home for their husbands coming back from the sea.
Camogli is located on the western side of Mount Portofino, and it is considered one of the most evocative village in all Tigullio Gulf. It has always been visited by renowned artists, writers and noblemen such as Gabriele D’Annunzio, Queen Margaret, Savoia Princes, Italo Balbo, Guglielmo Marconi, Friedrich Nietzsche, Kim Novak, Orson Welles and many other international celebrities.
The majority of Mount Portofino belongs to Camogli territory, while the facing waters are part of Portofino marine protected area. San Fruttuoso di Camogli (a very famous location with its medieval abbey) and Portofino are reachable in few minutes by a small ferry.
Italian and international trekking lovers give the evocative hike from Camogli to Portofino its deserved fame.
There are no words to describe the beauty of the alleys (caruggi), spreading through the old colorful fishermen houses, frescoed with the typical tromp l’oeil technique: like a scenic design, statues, bas reliefs and balustrades are painted on the façades.
This village, partly thanks to its port (still used by the fishermen like it used to be), is an excellence in Italian architectural style.
