Meeting with the driver at the Cruisers Terminal and using the highway to Genoa we meet the guide in Rapallo. The origins of the city are very old, as the village was founded in 1145 by the Republic of Genoa. Walking tour in to the historic center, in particular the famous “carrugiu dritu”, the main street of the medieval city, with its shops and boutiques, the church of Santo Stefano – built in the fifth century A.D. – and the oratory of the Blacks. A look also at the elegant promenade and the medieval castle.
By car you reach Santa Margherita, one of the most beautiful towns of the Riviera di Levante, also known as “Perla del Tigullio” (the “Tigullio Pearl”). On foot you can visit the historic center and the church of Santa Margherita, from which the city takes its name.
By car you can reach Paraggi enchanting fishing village, also known as the “beach of Portofino”, for its small and beautiful beach. From there begins our “red carpet”, a path between olive trees and Mediterranean vegetation to reach Portofino, a beautiful resort now famous all over the world for its colorful houses, breathtaking views and beautiful shops, destination of the international jet set.
