We came here by ferry from Portofino. There is not a lot to see or do. But it was a nice ride and it gave us a chance to see the coastline. The church is free. There is a fee to visit the museum.

We took a boat from Camogli to the Abbey. It was over crowded. The sea and the beach were very nice if you can see from the many people. They divided the tiny beach, the huge part is private, you have to pay for the...More
