Meeting Point
How to reach us

The meeting point is at our sports center in Niasca, in the Bay of Paraggi. Once in Santa Margherita L. continue towards Portofino until the bay of Paraggi. Passed the inlet of the bay, after 200m on the left you will find a sandy beach where Outdoor Portofino is located. This area has very limited parking areas, especially during summertime. In Paraggi there is a paid parking lot, but we suggest to reach our office by alternative means (bus, boat, bicycle) or walking from Portofino (about 10 minutes) or S. Margherita L. (about 40 minutes).
Here are some suggestions on how to reach us:

By train

The train station of Santa Margherita Ligure/Portofino is reachable from Milan (2 h 30 min), from Genoa (45 min), from Pisa (2 h). You may then continue walking, by bus, boat or taxi.

By bus

With the n. 82 line from the train stations of Santa Margherita Ligure or from Rapallo.


From Portofino (approx. 10 min.); from Santa Margherita Ligure (approx. 30-40 min.); from Camogli, through the trails of the park of Portofino.

By boat

There are two lines serving the promontory of Portofino. From Santa Margherita Ligure you can reach Portofino with the Consorzio Marittimo del Tigullio. From Genoa, Recco or Camogli, instead, the boat service Golfo Paradiso, embraces the route to San Fruttuoso, from where you can then take the ferries of the Consorzio Marittimo del Tigullio to Portofino.


In case of particular requests and needs, we are available to customize the experience. Book the tour privately with a small surcharge. Contact us with your requests, we will assist you in every step!
