What to expect
You might not have heard of these Medieval Ligurian cities, perched between the promontory of Portofino and the Cinque Terre, in the heart of the Gulf of Tigullio. Often, these towns are wrongly skipped from guidebooks: they are not as pretty as neighbouring fishing villages like Camogli, they don´t have impressive galleries and museums. Yet, there is something very charming and quintessentially Italian about these underrated towns that make them worth a visit.
