san fruttuoso day trips
portofino day trips

The day trip includes a stop and a free visit to San Fruttuoso and then onward with a local boat to Portofino, returning to the departure ports in the late afternoon. As indicated on the departure schedule of each boarding point, on some dates the excursion comprises of a direct route to Portofino, without a stop at San Fruttuoso.

Liguria seen from the sea is beautiful! With this day trip you will forget about traffic and long waits in the car and admire the beauty of the coast: small villages that alternate with the most significant towns, beaches and coves where you can appreciate the colour of the sea in all shades of blue..

San Fruttuoso can only be reached by boat: there are no roads to get there, only a few paths to walk in the shade of dense vegetation. Our boat docks at the exclusive landing jetty, next to a small beach where you can swim and enjoy a coffee in a small bar overlooking the sea.

You can visit the famous Abbey of San Fruttuoso, a humble former home of fishermen and thereafter the hideout of pirates, until it became the property of Doria, the Genoese  princes. The monastery with the Cloister, Sala Capitolare and the Church can be visited.

Local boats connect the fishing village of San Fruttuoso and Portofino in about 20 minutes. (transfer included in the ticket price on dates when the service is not offered by our boat).

Other smaller boats, to be contacted directly on site, allow you to admire the CHRIST OF THE ABYSS, an imposing statue protecting scuba divers, located 17 meters below the surface of the sea.

PORTOFINO is the most famous and prestigious town of Liguria, famous for its bars and restaurants and terrace overlooking the piazzetta mondana, and full of up-market shops. The charming Castello Brown can be visited, surrounded by a Mediterranean garden full of flowers, roses and pergolas, accessible via the stairway to the Church of Saint George in the direction of the peninsula and the lighthouse.
