Well sign posted walks through the park guide you safely from Santa margherita to San Fruttuoso or Portofino. Fantastic views along the coast. Still wonder how they get their shopping home to the hill top cottages without roads!

One of the most beautiful day hikes I have ever been on. Make sure to stop at San Fruttuoso Abbey! It is a relatively steep hike so bring good footwear and be prepared to break a sweat. Focaccia and apertivo await you in Camogli at...More

This is a beautiful town, clean, relaxing. Good to visit for one day. Very nice the walking to the Castle Brown in top of the Hill.

Take the hike! What a beautiful trail (a bit steep in parts, be prepared). The views are incredible. We went from Portofino to San Fruttuoso, took the ferry back. Plan for lunch in the cove.

Beautiful countryside and well-maintained paths. Great exercise too! So many possibilities in the area. Only downside is the sporadic signposting of routes. Try to find the honey farm on the hill above Portofino!!

Hike from San Frutuoso to Portofino. The first third is uphill and fails steep so be prepared. Pause for the various scenic overlooks to appreciate the Ligurian coastline. Next third slightly uphill and downhill before petering off into a paved pathway that passes through some...More

A wonderful set of trails. Very scenic. Rough on parts. Not for the faint hearted. About seven or 8 hours to go from Camogli to Santa Margherita

I would walk to San Fruttuoso from Portofino or Santa Marg. then take the boat back - the decent into SF is easier than the climb would be
