Days 1-2: Island Exploration & Portero Marble Mines
Revel in the colorful harbor of Portovenere from the nearby island’s offshore view of the coast. Then a spectacular panoramic trail leads us to Riomaggiore, the “prima terra,” to introduce the regional magic. Fresh mussels for dinner anyone?

Days 3-4: Abbeys, Saffron & Pilgrim Trails:
Walk along the “Via Amore” to Manarola then to Corniglia via an isolated path of olive groves and fig trees smattered with poppies. From pictorial Camogli hike to the ancient isolated abbey of San Fruttuoso and its Dorian tower before a saunter into Portofino via the high jutting cliffs.
