Golfo Paradiso: a little corner of heaven just a stone’s throw from Genoa
Just outside Genoa, continuing eastwards, you will come across the beautiful Golfo Paradiso, nestled between the metropolitan area of the Ligurian capital and the promontory of Portofino, squeezed between the blue of the sea and the green of the hills.
This territory includes seven municipalities: Bogliasco, Pieve Ligure, Sori, Recco and Camogli, directly overlooking the sea, and Avegno and Uscio, two small villages climbing inland.
Driving along the scenic Via Aurelia, you can choose one of these picturesque towns to relax and enjoy the typical serene and peaceful atmosphere that characterises these places. The climate is particularly mild throughout the year, so you can spend long days outdoors and fully appreciate the landscape of the Ligurian coast in the company of your loved one.
Don’t miss a pleasant and romantic walk around the small port of Bogliasco or along the ancient Roman bridge at the mouth of the stream of the same name, or visit the heart of the town to discover its monuments and artistic treasures such as the Sanctuary of Nostra Signora delle Grazie.
In Recco, let yourself be won over by the typical flavours and aromas of Ligurian cuisine: here you can taste the famous focaccia al formaggio, one of the most famous dishes of the Liguria region, also protected by the IGP (Protected Geographical Indication) label.
Not to be missed is a visit to Camogli, a true gem of the Golfo Paradiso, which is one of the favourite locations for young couples wishing to get married in an enchanting setting with breathtaking views.
One of the most scenic places in the area is undoubtedly the small hamlet of San Rocco di Camogli, where you can visit the charming church of San Rocco and enjoy an extraordinary panoramic view over the Ruta valley, the entire Golfo Paradiso as far as Genoa and the West Coast Riviera. Here you will find a fairytale setting, ideal for a marriage proposal or for exchanging promises of eternal love.
These places will win your heart and here you can find the perfect setting for your honeymoon, surrounded by sea and sky, in one of the most beautiful corners of the East Coast Riviera.
