This daytrip to Portofino covers a walk through Camoglie, trek uphill with vast views of Genova descending into Portofino.
• Meeting in Riomaggiore at Riomaggiore train station.
• 40-minute train ride to Camogli via Chiavari.
This trek can be expanded to include a tour of Chiavari which goes back to medieval times. It is possible to have dinner at one of the two oldest restaurants. They are family run and serve only limited dishes. (To add on Chiavari is another 35.00 per person. Food and drinks not included.)
• Trek to Portofino. This trek is a serious one and has many trails, some can take up to 5 hours. The start is a steep incline, with flights of stairs to reach the church of St. Rocco. The views are beautiful and you can see the city of Genova. We continue through a forest until we reach a crossroads, where we decide which trail to take? You can go to Portofino the long way or short way or just down to Santa Margherita. The trail has some wonderful views as we wind around the hillside through the forest. On the way down we pass and old mill that is well over 100 years old. We descend with incredible views of the hillsides, the sea and Portofino below.
