Our Genoa and Portofino tour starts off early – you’ll transfer from the Genova port to Santa Margherita by minivan or coach at 8 AM. This seaside holiday resort town is a lovely place to start the day, particularly on the seaside promenade.
At 9:15 AM, you’ll board a boat to head to Portofino, a lovely town set in a charming, secluded bay nestled in the Italian coastline. You’ll arrive at 9:30 AM and begin a guided tour of the area. This little town offers a look at the stereotypical Italian setting – olive groves, palm and cypress trees, swaying pines and unspoiled charm. You’ll begin your guided tour in the town square, and then move through the narrow, winding lanes, past sprawling villas.
You’ll see the Church of St. George and the move on to Castle Brown and enjoy the incredible view out over the Gulf of Rapallo and Portofino. The tour then returns to town, where you’ll have 30 minutes of free time to relax, shop, or explore before the next leg of the tour.
At noon, you’ll board a boat heading to Santa Margherita Ligure, with arrival a mere 15 minutes later. Here, you’ll transfer to a coach and travel back to Genova. The tour arrives at the Porto Antico by 1 PM, and you will have free time to grab some lunch, shop or simply sit and enjoy the atmosphere.
You’ll be met by an English-speaking guide at 2:30 and taken on a tour of Genova, where you’ll see the city’s ancient center, stroll along its cobblestone streets and enjoy many different key cultural and historic points. You will wrap up your tour with a 6 PM transfer back to your ship in Genova.
Tour operates rain or shine. (*) If rough sea conditions do not permit for sailing, the cruise will be substituted with land transport.
