What you can expect

Discover one of Europe’s largest medieval cities in Genoa and the alluring village of Portofino on this full-day excursion. Take an informative walking tour of the city, a scenic boat ride along the rocky coastline and enjoy free time to explore these popular Northern Italy seaports.

Genoa is a surprising anomaly among Italian cities. Rather than the historical splendour of the likes of Venice or Turin, it has a distinct cosmopolitan flair – thanks to its recent developments. Take a guided walking tour of the city that hosted the World Expo in 1992 and was named 2004’s European Capital of Culture. See how it has transformed from a gritty seaport into an exciting modern metropolis.

After your exploration of Genoa, jump aboard a boat and head out of the port to cruise along the beautiful coastline to Portofino. Look for dolphins along the way – the area is known for its large population. Take time to discover this charming seaside village on your own before returning by boat to Santa Margherita Ligure and heading back to Milan.
