It is said that one of the most pleasant surprises on the Italian Riviera is the small fishing village of Camogli, tucked away between Portofino Mountain and the Ligurian Sea. But Camogli is more than just a fishing village. Although it may not reel in international celebrities and luxury yachts like its more famous neighbor, Portofino, Camogli is an increasingly popular tourist destination. In the summer, the town's population of 7,000 almost doubles, as tourists and Italians arrive for their “holiday.”
During our day visit, a handful of us set out to be adventurous and took a 1 ½ hour hike up and down a mountain to San Nicolo where we then took a ferry boat to San Frutuosso. A few of us dipped into the mediterranean to cool off and others visited the 13th-century abbey. Between the translucent teal blue ocean and the fantastic views, I found Camogli to be one the most beautiful places I’ve ever been………......yet.
