Why not get started with Camogli, Torre Fara, Piazza dei Pescatori, Ferrari Piazza or Portofino?
Camogli is in the green amphitheater of the Golfo Paradiso in the Eastern Ligurian Riviera, among olive trees and maritime pines within the Portofino Natural Park. The stretch of sea of Camogli is in the Portofino Marine Protected Area: the extraordinary beauty of the underwater landscape attracts thousands of divers who dive each year in these waters.
Torre Fara (Fara Tower) The structure, dedicated to the memory of General Gustavo Fara, was commissioned by the National Fascist Party in 1935 as a seaside resort and residence for children, to be used mainly in the summer. In 1940, due to Italy’s entry into the war, the building was used as a military hospital and temporary occupation site for the German army.
