Tour Details

Start your day with a scenic drive from port to Santa Margherita, one of the Levante Riviera's most important towns. This town has deep roots to the Middle Ages and rose to prominence in the 17th century thanks to Genovese nobility building stunning villas. By the 19th century Santa Margherita was drawing visitors from all over Europe, and today the town is an elegant international tourist destination with numerous hotels and seaside facilities. Enjoy a guided tour of the town with its unusual mix of nautical and Belle Epoque styles. Santa Margherita offers a lot of seaside sports thanks to its sailing club, boat hiring facilities and several diving centers.

From there you will continue along the Tigullio Gulf with its panoramic views to the classy resort village of Portofino. Originally a fishing village then a small naval port, today Portofino's waters host pricey yachts as well as common pleasure and fishing boats. Take a guided tour and grab some postcard-perfect shots of the town with its pastel-colored buildings, canopied cafes and bougainvillea-garnished villas dotting the waterfront. The striking contrast of brightly colored antique buildings poised over sparkling blue water and the luxuriant green hillsides of the Portofino Promontory are a true feast for the eyes!

Along the harbor you will find a walking path with one of the largest concentrations of flora and fauna in the Mediterranean. At the top of the hill is the Church of San Giorgio with St. George's relics inside and breathtaking views of the bay and the Tigullian Gulf on the outside. From here you can walk to the Punto del Capo, or Portofino lighthouse, for another great lookout point. Stay in town and enjoy some free time for shopping and lunch before your return to port. Book this 9 hour private tour today and get ready to experience the beauty and charm of Santa Margherita and Portofino.
