Camogli City Guide
Camogli stands out as one of the most enchanting and romantic towns in the Golfo Paradiso, nestled along the Riviera di Levante.
This seaside village’s allure lies in its breath-taking panorama: a picturesque marina embraced by historic buildings adorned with vibrant hues that line the seafront, complemented by the evocative remains of a medieval castle. The stunning seaside promenade, reminiscent of the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France, is adorned with charming restaurants and cosy B&Bs.
Camogli’s history adds to its allure. It was once a prominent naval hub in the Mediterranean, earning the moniker “the city of a thousand white sailing ships.” During the mid-19th century, the town possessed approximately 700 sailing vessels, securing its place as the third most powerful Italian force in the Mediterranean.
Camogli is perfectly suited for day trips from Genoa or neighbouring cities, but it’s equally ideal for a leisurely holiday. Time moves unhurriedly here, allowing for tranquil days on the beach, idyllic boat excursions, and romantic seafood dinners paired with local white wines.
Throughout the year, Camogli offers something new to explore and discover. Beyond its enchanting landscape, you can immerse yourself in visits to castles and museums, savour the delectable local cuisine, and if you’re lucky to be there at the right time, partake in the city’s charming and lively traditional festivals.
