Along the Riviera di Levante in Liguria there are several villages with unique charm. Among the most unforgettable is Recco, a characteristic fishermen’s village near Genoa where you can discover the locals’ time-honored fishing traditions and delightful seafood. Recco is also famous for its excellent focaccia which is served in many different places.
Another enchanting town in the province of Genoa is Camogli. Its brightly colored houses create a striking architectural rainbow that makes the atmosphere truly alluring. Like many other Ligurian towns, Camogli has a bustling port where you can experience the local culture and regional traditions, or spend a day at the scenic pebble beach and visiting the lighthouse. A romantic walk at sunset, while the waters lap the beach, is definitely one of the best ways to end a magical day.
From Camogli, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the fascinating Abbey of San Fruttuoso. To reach the Abbey you have two options: a challenging but panoramic walk, or a scenic ferry boat ride in complete comfort. Either way you'll be able to admire what is considered one of the most famous, beautiful and important monuments in Liguria. Few can match the beauty of this Romanesque monastery built around the year 1000 on the Ligurian coast.
