Private Portofino and Santa Margherita
The elegant international tourist destination of Santa Margherita and the classy resort village of Portofino are a true photographer's dream! Spend the day exploring these 2 towns through the lens of your camera as you take to the streets to document their beauty and histories. Start your experience at Santa Margherita, one of the main towns along the Levante Riviera. Enjoy a guided tour of the town, taking in the eclectic mix of nautical and Belle Epoque styles. Here you will find remnants of the Middle Ages alongside modern hotels and seaside facilities including a sailing club with its masted treasures waiting in the water.
From there you will enjoy a panoramic drive of the Tigullio Gulf as you head toward Portofino, a sleepy fishing village-turned-classy resort destination. Head to the small bay to grab a photo of the old fishing vessels mixed in with pricey yachts and common pleasure boats. The waterfront is a photographer's dream with its pastel-colored buildings, canopy-covered cafes and bougainvillea-garnished villas dotting hills in the background. At the harbor you will find a walking path that will lead you through one of the largest concentrations of flora and fauna in the Mediterranean.
Walk up the hill to the Church of San Giorgio with its relic of St. George and spectacular views of the town and the Tigullio Gulf below. You can also walk to the Punto del Capo with its active lighthouse for another great lookout point. While in Portofino you will have some free time to shop and enjoy a delicious lunch.
