Road Trip Through Camogli; Italy

Ciao bellas!

Camogli will be featured on this post – enjoy the colour, it’s certainly a lovely little place to stop at.

Camogli (Camuggi in Genoese dialect) is a small Italianfishing village and tourist resort located on the west side of the peninsula of Portofino, on the Golfo Paradiso at the Riviera di Levante, in the province of Genoa on the Italian Riviera.


My advice – Camogli and Portofino are lovely places to see during the day but if you really want to get off the beaten track, look for a little Bed&Breakfast perched on one of the mountains which overlooks this region.

(As you will see from our breakfast photo, we enjoyed the stillness quite a lot.)

Camogli is famous for its seafood so after receiving a recommendation from our Airbnb host, we went to his favourite local restaurant and ordered two full fish for dinner with some typical homemade Italian pasta.

…….. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the restaurant but if you look on Tripadvisor, it was one of the best seafood places in town.

Thank you for reading – I appreciate every click.

This travel blog is a real passion of mine so if you have any comments or suggestions, I’m all ears!

That’s all for now – Ciao!



Camogli. We were surprised by the stillness of this fishing town. Perhaps due to the time of year?


Our little visitor at our Airbnb home. Even though I must admit I don’t like cats, he was cute!

The only reason I’m posting this photo is because I think it looks a little bit like a movie set…. almost like it’s not real. Italian towns are cute like that.

This was our Airbnb location. A small cottage on top of a mountain near Camogli. We had freshly shaved Parma ham, with lemons picked from the tree, rocket, parmesan and ciabatta bread for breakfast. Also our host was kind enough to make some very strong espresso for us.


My favourite photo of Camogli.


I am always a sucker for colourful doors and archways.

Enjoying the road trip from Portofino to Cinque Terre and being able to stop anywhere beautiful!


Serene water.


The beauty of roadtripping is that you can stop at every delicious corner, pull out a fresh piece of bread, parma ham and a lemon and just take in the views.

      Oh my goodness! Amazing to see it in summer – we were there in May when it was grey and the sea was so calm but so dark!

It’s such a cool thing that you travel around, i would love to do that after university!!
