Suggestions for a daytrip to either Portofino or Portovenere from Levanto

Jump to last reply

In mid May we will be spending a week in Levanto with a car. I thought one of the days should be a planned day trip to either/ both Portofino or Portovenere. I don't know if there is enough diversity between the two port towns to visit both during our week long stay.

I have read about Rapello, Camogli near Portofino and wondered if that would be a good combination for a day trip. If so, what would be a good way to combine these three towns either by driving, trains or ferry. I know the ferry is dependent on calm waters so I'm reluctant to use that as our only means of touring.

Are there towns around Portovenere to combine to make a full day of touring from Levanto? I know we can reach Portovenere by ferry from Levanto but again if the ferry isn't running can you give suggestions for a day trip that would include Portovenere and surrounding towns.

Thank you for any suggestions. Deborah
