Camogli — Paradise Gulf —

Kissed by the sun that brushes the colours of the typical tall houses with ever-changing light,
embraced by the natural green amphitheatre of maritime pines and olive trees, the old village of Camogli stands on the shores of Paradise Gulf,
between the city of Genoa to the west and the exclusive resorts of the Portofino coast to the east.

History and tradition

Once known as the “City of a Thousand Sails” in honour of its glorious fleet, Camogli can claim a history rich in maritime traditions
dating back to the days when its courageous captains sailed away to conquer faraway seas.
Although the great sailing vessels are no longer part of the scenery, the aspect of the old town has remained remarkably intact,
readily recognizable by the parish church and the Dragone Castle standing above the harbour, flanked by the colourful tall houses towering over the seafront.
Here life revolves around the little harbour, where colourfully painted boats seem content to bob in the water, laden with nets,
ropes and lamps that testify to the traditional methods still used by local fishermen.
Camogli is the last place in the Ligurian sea with a tonnara, an ingenious system of nets devised to catch migrating tuna,
used in the Mediterranean for several centuries.
