Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your motorboat and cruise along the scenic, winding coastline. You'll pass steep cliffs, rocky coves and the blue waters of the Riviera di Levante en route to one of the most popular destinations on the Riviera, breathtaking Rapallo Camogli, a small typical fishing village, once the site of bustling shipyards that helped build one of the world's greatest merchant fleets. Camogli's original medieval setting was centered around the local parish church, located on an island that was completely detached from the mainland. Today, this island is connected to the mainland by a little square surrounded by colorful buildings and the Basilica is considered one of the most beautiful Baroque churches along the Italian coastline. Here you will take a guided visit through the village and have some free time on your own after a focaccia tasting.

Board your motorboat and sail to Santa Margherita admiring during the cruise the small bay of the village of San Fruttuoso, famous for its 10th-century abbey--the ancient residence of the Doria family. In Santa Margherita, stroll along the seaside promenade and explore the charming shops and cafes. Visit a gelateria for a scrumptious treat and admire the luxury yachts and quaint fishing vessels that dot the harbor. Santa Margherita rose to prominence with the arrival of the English in the 19th century. Your guided visit takes you past historical sites but includes time for independent exploration. Reboard your motorboat and travel to Portofino. Today this ancient fishing village of Roman origin is one of the most famous resorts in the world with its tall and colorful houses facing the Piazzetta and the harbor. From the heart of the village, you may choose to take a small path to reach the lighthouse for panoramic views. Walk with your guide to visit the church of Saint George and find the preserved Saint's relics, which were brought to Portofino by returning sailors from the crusades. Take in the superb panoramic views over the Piazzetta before returning to the harbor. At the completion of your day in Portofino re-board your motorboat and relax during the cruise back to Genoa.
