Camogli

Exploring Golfo Paradiso

Our Camogli Travel Guide, is here to help you find :


What is the attraction of the town ?

Camogli is a small fishing village tucked away to the west of Portofino promontory between Portofino and Recco and is such a pleasant surprise to discover on the Ligurian Riviera.



Its name is often quoted as having a double meaning. One translates as “houses close together” and describes perfectly the many rows of tall, closely tucked together colourful tower-houses. The other meaning is “houses of wives” and refers to the fishermen’s wives, who traditionally spent their time at home while their husbands were out at sea.

We consider this place one of the best towns to experience the beauty of the typical Ligurian tower-houses - walking around town makes you feel like an ant navigating around an enchanting labyrinth while your eyes feast on a warm range of orange and yellow hues.

With the years the town’s beauty is being discovered by more and more tourists and the town is becoming an increasingly popular destination, especially during the summer months when its population of 7,000 almost doubles in size. The town though does not feel over-crowded, just pleasantly bustling with summer fun...
