Situated on theCamogli western Portofino promontory, Camogli is an ancient seaside village in the wonderful Paradise Gulf on the Eastern Riviera. Not too far away from Genova, Camogli is a unique place where the colourful houses give directly onto the old harbour, which is still the center of the village life. One of the most pleasant surprises on the Italian Riviera is the small fishing village of Camogli, tucked away between Portofino Mountain and the Ligurian Sea. Camogli has a double meaning in Italian. The first translation, "houses close together," is apparent when you stroll through the town's narrow streets, which are lined by tall columns of pastel-colored homes. The second meaning, "houses of wives," is not so obvious; it refers to the fishermen's wives, who traditionally spent their time at home while their husbands were out at sea. But Camogli is more than just a fishing village. Camogli is a perfect destination for sailing holiday in Italian Riviera.

CamogliAlthough it may not reel in scores of international celebrities and luxury yachts like its more famous neighbor, Portofino, Camogli is an increasingly popular tourist destination. In the summer, the town's population of 7,000 almost doubles, as tourists and Italians who own vacation homes in Camogli arrive. Camogli's biggest tourist attraction is its annual fish-fry and festival during the second weekend of May. Saturday's "blessing of the fish" festivities include bonfires and a spectacular display of fireworks. On Sunday the town pulls out what is said to be the largest skillet in the world (about four meters -- more than 12 feet -- in diameter) and fries up a huge helping of fish donated by the local fish cooperative. Come to discover Camogli: Rich gastronomy, Crystal sea and ancient tradition for sailing vacation a romantic escape or a luxury motor yacht charter in the Italian Riviera.
