Plenty of activities are available for the more adventuresome: snorkelling between the rocks, kayaking down the shore to hidden coves, scuba diving to explore the underground world of the marine reserve.
From the old maritime republic of Genoa, to the typical seaside towns between Camogli and the Cinque Terre, to the exclusive yachting resorts of the Riviera like Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure and Rapallo, the beauty of the coast is best enjoyed from the sea.
Tour boats are an ideal way to visit the coastal resorts or the city of Genoa, birthplace of Christopher Columbus, where attractions feature Europes largest Aquarium, located in the Old Port area renovated by the world-famous Genoese architect Renzo Piano. Exploring the city's historic centre is like embarking on a treasure hunt, through the maze of winding narrow alleys that open onto splendid squares, revealing a noble city rich in culture, museums and palaces, art and architecture.
Back in the Riviera, plenty of options are available for other outdoor activities. Golf enthusiasts will be keen to play a round at the prestigious Golf Club of Rapallo, located just a short distance from the hotel. Playing a game of tennis or kicking around a football are other options available right on the hotel premises. Nature lovers will not want to pass up the opportunity for an excursion in the Mount Portofino park, where well-marked trails are available for all levels of hikers. Whether it be a leisurely walk through the woods or a challenging trek on the mountainside, the trails offer a perfect way to explore the beauty of this Mediterranean paradise.
