The only way of getting there is by sea or walk (about 75 mins).  You can choose a public boat at reasonable price. If the money is not a problem, try to rent a small taxi boat.  It's a very unforgettable experience.  But this is always best to discuss with us beforehand.

• Rapallo, the largest town on the Levante Riviera, although it is not as well-known as nearby Portofino and Santa Margherita  town, it has the typical aristocratic quality of the Riviera, seen in the villas and large hotels built from the 19th century.



• Santa Margherita, an elegant international tourist destination with a unique atmosphere. Nestling around the port, its special charm lies in the unusual mix of nautical and Belle Epoque styles.


• Camogli - Camogli is a small town , built into the hills of the Ligurian coast, one of the best places to snap photos of the colourful houses along the promenade.   Some of the frontage have been painted only, it is done in such a perfect way, that even standing in a short distance, you may think that they are real.


• 2nd Sunday of May the  Festival of Fish  takes place; on the occasion, two very large pans, 4 meters in diameter with a 6 meters long handles, imagine how many kilos of fish are fried in one go!
