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.
