1 DAY – Welcome to the Italian Riviera
Today is your arrival day. Benvenuto! Check-in at your boutique accommodation in Santa Margherita Ligure area. Relax after a long trip and start feeling the Italian atmosphere!
2 DAY – Chiavari Old Town and its Artisans
After breakfast, meet your private local tour guide for a a walking tour of Chiavari old village and its ancients shops. You will visit the old town centre. This village is characterized by its famous narrow arcaded streets called “Carruggi”, which are lined with elegant and exclusive old shops as the pasticceria, and where a bustling market is also held every Friday.
Here you will enter some ancient local artisan’s workshop such as the one who still continues a very old tradition: he makes by hand the wooden stamps used to produce the typical local pasta shapes known as Corzetti. For lunch you’ll also taste some typical Ligurian street food such as “farinata”, a chick pea cake (not included).
3 DAY – Portofino oil and wine. Arrivederci day!
After breakfast, you’ll have an exclusive experience in Portofino: you will reach a private terraced garden just above the village (10 minutes walk). From there you will enjoy an amazing view of the village and its bay. Among olive and lemon trees, herbs and vines, you’ll meet a local skillful lady who will tell you about the precious olive oil they make and the local wine. You will have the opportunity to taste them accompanied by local tastings.
Afternoon at your disposal. Check-out and departure. We will look forward to meeting you again and hope that you enjoyed this special little taste of the Italian Riviera.
