    Visit: Abbazia di San Fruttuoso, Via San Fruttuoso 13, 16032, Camogli Italy

    Only 5 km from Portofino and 40 km from Genoa, the San Fruttuoso abbey is a corner of paradise you can reach only by ferry from Camogli and Rapallo or on foot. This one-time Benedictine monastery (Xth century), from the 13th century the abbey’s fate became intertwined with that of the Doria family, who renovated its design, adding the loggia and transferring here the family burial ground. The Abbey and the fishing village around it stand as a true oasis in a unique scenario, amid the earth and the woodlands of Mount Portofino and the blue sea of eastern Liguria.
    Open almost every day all year round, discover the authentic soul of this place with a guided tour or a visit on your own. The entrance ticket includes a visit on your own of the complex.

    In case of bad weather conditions, the Abbey might be closed. Please check before travelling.
