We were looking at boat cruises to visit several coastal areas along the way to Portofino. We had a chance meeting with a carabinieri at the Aquario who suggested going to Golfi Paradiso instead of the other company adjacent to the aquarium. We saved €25 at least by going with Paradiso. At €20 each with two sailings at 10 am and 2pm. The cruise takes you to Recco, Camogli, San Frottuoso and finally Portofino. We took the 2 pm sailing and stayed in Portofino for 70 minutes and were back in Genoa by 18:30.
Excellent value for money. Trip was very pleasant and views were fantastic. Wished we could have gone earlier and stayed in one other place longer before proceeding to Portofino. Never mind, as we will be back, probably staying in Recco as it is famous for its cuisine.
Portofino I found to be over rated and pretentious! Had coffee at Bonani in front of the harbour--€ 5!!! Good shopping though because they have a sale!
