What to expect

Discover Genoa, the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, a city with a glorious past! Spend your morning in one of the most charming cities in Northern Italy. Also visit Portofino, the pearl of the Ligurian sea.

Genoa, the largest medieval town in Europe, maintains the charm of the ancient maritime republic. Your day starts in the Ancient Harbor, renovated in 1992 by the architect Renzo Piano, where your friendly and professional guide will lead you through the labyrinth of narrow alleyways of the old town to discover the many attractions of this city on an inspiring walking tour.

After free time for lunch (not included), hop on your air-conditioned coach for a scenic ride following the Tigullio gulf, nicknamed the Dolphins Gulf due to the large school of dolphins that can often be spotted here, to reach the colorful village of Santa Margherita Ligure. Here you take the boat for a mini-cruise to the charming fishing village of Portofino, a half-moon shaped sea-side village whose beauty has been narrated across the millennia by writers and poets such as Guy de Maupassant.

The journey ends with the return by boat to Genoa.
