A typical small seaside village, the essence of Ligurian tradition, with its colorful houses, stairs and alleys.
Each building, church and tiny detail contains an intertwining of history, sea and pastel colors.
The colorful facades of the houses accompany you along the entire promenade to the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, which stands right on the most extreme point of the village, on what is called the ancient medieval island, a symbol of Camogli since ancient times.
The entrance can be reached from the small square of the nearby port by climbing a wide stairway
that also leads to the ancient Castel Dragone, built on the rocks overlooking the sea
during the period of the Saracen invasions to defend the territory.
The heart of the village is its characteristic marina with gozzo boats (small double-ended fishing boats), fishing boats, nets drying in the sun and tourist boats. A lively place with its open-air cafés among tourists, fishermen, hugs on the seashore and flights of seagulls.
The small size of the village makes it particularly convenient to explore on foot so that you can breathe in the its entire atmosphere: the promenade along the sea, the marina and the small internal streets not only offer particular views, facades that look like paintings, hidden squares where time seems to have stopped, but it also offers many small characteristic shops where you can discover jewels, ceramics and typical Ligurian handcrafted objects.
And after shopping, all that remains is to indulge in an aperitif or a tasty dinner facing the sunset
or in the midst of some fresh and colorful alleyways.
