The best way to start is to go to one of the luxury hotels high on the slopes and have a coffee while enjoying the view.  It is pricey (8 Euro pp) but certainly sets the mood.  From then on,  leisurely mosey around.   Postpone any major dining or shopping to St. Margherita or other local villages.  If you have the time,  take advantage of the local national park.  It is a significant effort and time investment, but will give an amazing feel for this coast line.
