DAY 1 - Boarding in Santa Margherita Ligure on charter catamaran . Welcome aperitif and dinner on board. Overnight and in the morning sail to Camogli.
DAY 2 - CAMOGLI Camogli, 25km from Genoa in the western part of Italy is most famous for its sheer number of trompe l'œil villas, its photogenic terraced streets winding down to a perfect cove of pebble beach amid a backdrop of umbrella pines and olive groves. Still, as pretty as the town is, it remains a working fishing hub – the town's name means 'house of wives', hailing from the days when the womenfolk ran the show while the husbands were away at sea. Come the second weekend in May, the town celebrates its maritime heritage with the Sagra del Pesce (Fish Festival) and a huge fish fry – hundreds are cooked in 3m-wide pans along the waterfront. Sailing from Santa Margherita to Camogli and overnight on board of the charter catamaran.
DAY 3 - SAN FRUTTUOSO San Fruttuoso is a slice of ancient tranquillity preserved amid some of Italy's busiest coastal resorts. There are no roads here. A unique place in a unique context, the San Fruttuoso Abbey is set in a little bay between Camogli and Portofino one of the most beautiful place in Italy and reachable only by boat or by a 2 hours walk. The Benedectine Abbey has been constructed in the 10th Century and its history is really special: from a monastery to a pirates' den, from the fishermen's home to tombs of the Princes of Doria. Donated to the Italian Heritage Trust, FAI Fondo Ambiente Italiano, today the Abbey is worth an excursion. You can visit the monastery, the tower, the tombs. Souvenir shop, restaurants and beach are available.
DAY 4 - PORTOFINO . Even the trees are handsome in Portofino, a small but perfectly coiffured coastal village in Italy that sits on its own peninsula, seemingly upping the exclusivity factor by mere geography. Hotels here are hushed and headily priced, but a drink by Portofino's yacht-filled harbour or a stroll around its designer shops can be very exciting. Don't miss to take an aperitif in the famous Piazzetta where a lot of vip are usually found. Relax yourself on board of our comfortable charter catamaran and enjoy the landscape and the sailing.
DAY 5 - PARAGGI .The crystalline clear blue waters of Niasca and Paraggi bay are irresistible to dive in!

DAY 6 - RAPALLO WB Yeats, Max Beerbohm and Ezra Pound all garnered inspiration in Rapallo a small village in Italy and it's not difficult to see why.
