Photos To Make You Want To Visit Camogli Italy

Photos To Make You Want To Visit Camogli Italy – Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

I’d been touring the Ligurian region of Italy like gangbusters for three days straight on a with a mission to feast on as much local cuisine as could muster, as well as sample as much wine as possible. Predictably, my waistline expanded with each new town we visited, starting with Porto Venere where I learned how to cook various mussel based dishes, then Varese Ligure where I made a pesto flavoured pasta from scratch, and then Chiavari where I had dinner at the renowned Lord Nelson restaurant.

With plans of a diet and a strict workout regime for when I came home to Berlin, I was conclude the tour in Camogli, Italy. A small fishing village along the Italian Riviera where the mountains melt into the sea, I immediately fell in love.

I’m sure this comes at no surprise to anyone, as I’ve been known to easily throw my love around for various towns and cities across Europe but I’ve always had soft spot for Italy. It was the first European country I ever visited and there was one year where I visited the country on four separate occasions! If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.

My time in Camogli started off with a cooking lesson Focacceria Pasticceria Revello, where I learned how to whip up Focaccia col Formaggio di Recco like a pro. As expected, it was fresh and delicious melt in your moth goodness. I highly recommend coming here and tasting the different types of focaccia on offer.

After the cooking class concluded, I spent some time wandering around Camogli not just so I could see the town, but more importantly, walk off all that focaccia. Italy was experiencing warmer than usual weather, even though it was the end of October. It was mild enough to walk around without a jacket, with just a t-shirt and jeans, and let the sunshine kiss your skin.

The residential apartment buildings along the shore are painted with bright and cheerful colours. What’s really cool is that many facades in Camogli (and throughout the Ligurian region) are decorated with a special Trompe L’Oei treatment, a form of art that can be deceptive to the eye. Where you think you see a balcony or open window are in fact paintings that look surprisingly real.

The harbour was full of fishing boats, nets and little tokens of love.

I stood there watching the waves crashing along the shore for a really long time. The view held me spellbound and I found it hard to tear myself away. The early morning sun spilling through the trees, cast a dreamlike glow over Camogli. Sigh, so romantic.

  1. I didn’t spend much time on the Italian Riviera so I’ve never heard of Camogli. It looks absolutely beautiful. Great find!

  2. I’ve had a soft spot for Italy nearly my whole life — and I haven’t even been there! Luckily, that should be changing soon. These photos are a beautiful introduction to Camogli. Easy to see why you loved it.

  3. I really liked the region around Cinque Terre, even though we only spent a sinlge day across all 5 of the towns. We did a lot around the region. Portovenere was really awesome and with the castle actually more interesting than the fishing villages down the way.

  4. Great photos! I love the Italian country side, the food there is soo good; I’ve only been to Umbria, but definitely plan on travelling more in Italy!

  5. What a nice post.
    We live in Italian Riviera and I can say that Camogli is a pictoresque village, where you can eat the best “Focaccia” ever!
    Liguria is renowed for its land “cinque terre”, but let me say that all Liguria region is faboulous.
    Romantic villages like Cervo, Alassio, Laigueglia worth a trip, and ancient villages in the hinterland are fascinating.
    You can visit my Pinterest La Meridiana page on West Coast Italian Riviera and you’ll be amazed.
    If you need any information regarding Liguria, please write me: I would be pleased to help you exploring the best locations, traditions, with visit at oil mills, primary ingredient in our healthy mediterranean cuisine.

    Liguria and Italian Riviera: a motivating journey!

  6. … I forgot to say that other nice pics on Liguria hinterland villages are on “Pinterest La Meridiana Italian Riviera Historic Villages”
    Hope you will enjoy, and we wish nice trips with Cheryl Howard!

    Have a nice day,

    Alessandra
