What You Can Expect
After your Genoa walking tour, spend some time exploring independently. Your guide can offer recommendations for a relaxing lunch (own expense) or you can decide to check out more Genoa attractions. Some of the fascinating sites you could visit include the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town, Piazza de Ferrari and the Palace of the Doges.
In the afternoon, continue to Santa Margherita Ligure, just southeast of Genoa. This beautiful, old-fashioned seaside town sits on a part of the coast known as the Dolphin Gulf, named for the schools of dolphins often seen in the area. Here, take a scenic boat ride across the gulf to the fishing village of Portofino.
Spend approximately two hours exploring Portofino at your leisure, and discover the beauty of this small resort featuring a stunning harbor and pastel-colored waterfront houses. Favored as a holiday destination by Italy's rich and famous, Portofino is the ideal place to people spot or simply soak up the scenery. Head to Castello Brown, the city’s 16th-century castle. If you visit on a clear day, you'll be rewarded with views across the Mediterranean Sea of the lush mountains of Corsica.
Both Genoa and Portofino are lovely cities and the buildings are so colorful. Our guide gave some history and was very good at keeping us all on time. I didn't know what to expect when I booked this tour but am so glad I did. The tour company is very organized. This was the 2nd tour I had booked with them and I was happy with their customer service.
Genova and Portofino are very different but very interesting for visiting cities. Local tour guide in Genova was very informative.
I can't express enough about this trip, Totally amazing. Genoa has so much history and Portifino is breathtaking. Do yourself a favour and take this trip .. My rating is 5 out of 5.
Very nice tour!
very good tour. Most of the tour was at Genoa and we had a local guide who was extremely passionate about her city. We then drove to Santa Marguerita Ligure where we took a ferry to Portofino. Portofino is everything you imagine it to be. Picture perfect. Could have spent extra time in SML and Portofino instead of so much time in Genoa which really was a very grotty city.
this tour was amazing we enjoyed our time .. although they should mention that there is a time that you can swim at santa margharita .. as they told us when we reached there so we werent ready
but overall nice experience and very beautiful places
I would highly recommend this tour, we had a wonderful time, it was worth every cent. We absolutely loved it we also had a wonderful tour guide and great transport ! Great day!!
We loved this tour. Great way to see a lot in one day! Loved the boat ride!
What an exquisite trip, all-around. Transportation was fluid, and guides were knowledgeable and showed us Genoa inside out. A much more bustling city than we expected, and fill with history and art. Portofino, Santa Margherita and Rapello are picturesque - postcard beauty, where you have to experience to understand the vibrant colors, beautiful water and fantastic people. We will come back for this trip again, a must-see!
This tour was amazing!
