    Portofino Bay Shore Excursion

Portofino Bay Shore Excursion

  • City: Liguria (Italian Riviera), Portofino
  • Duration: The tour is approximately 8 hours in length.

Overview

This full-day shore excursion departs from your cruise dock in Genoa, Portofino or La Spezia and takes you to the main settlements bordering Portofino Bay: Camogli, the Abbey of San Fruttuoso di Capodimonte, Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure. A local tour guide will relate the fascinating histories of these villages, whose spectacular setting is hemmed in by the steep slopes of Monte di Portofino and the deep blue Ligurian Sea.

You will meet your guide in the village of Camogli, whose centuries-old fishing traditions are very evident, both in its harbor crowded with colorful boats and in its name: roughly translated, Camogli means "house of wives," referring to the wives of the fishermen who anxiously watched for their husbands to return from the sea.

With a local boat service, you will reach the little fishing village of San Fruttuoso di Capodimonte, dominated by a 10th century Benedictine monastic complex with a church, cloisters, a Chapter House and the tombs of the Doria princes, as well as a graceful Gothic loggia and a 16th century tower built to protect the bay from pirates.

You'll have time to enter and explore the abbey complex before setting off for Portofino. Named Portus Delphini (Port of the Dolphin) by the ancient Romans, this enchanting village is well known to international jet setters and yachting enthusiasts. Its picturesque, half-moon shaped harbor is lined with pastel houses, exclusive boutiques and outdoor cafes.

After visiting Portofino, you will take the boat to either the town of Santa Margherita Ligure or Rapallo where you will have some time for a pleasant promenade along the sea front before returning to your cruise dock terminal with plenty of time before your ship's departure.
