Discover the secrets of the Mediterranean tradition, learning how to make a delightful “pesto” with fresh basil. Meet the chef and start your day with a fresh “limonata”, then follow him and harvest the aromatic herbs to make your delightful lunch from the garden. Return to the kitchen and have fun preparing a typical regional menu: enjoy the convivial lunch paired with a superb tasting of Pigato and Sciacchetrà white wines.

Challenge yourself in a walking itinerary along a path from Portofino to the small enchanting beach of Paraggi and back: follow the track on the Portofino Mount admiring the ancient mills of the XVI century. Have a stop for a refreshing merenda with traditional Ligurian focaccia and salami, sampling a glass of an outstanding local white wine.

Love a full-day private boat cruise to Cinque Terre: stop in the small towns for visits and have a nice walk in the natural park to reach an outstanding wine estate where vines are cultivated on terraces, through the crushing of the rock and the patient construction of dry stone walls.

Meet the owner and learn more about these typical terraces, that have contributed decisively to the stability of the slopes and have created a unique landscape, then have a great wine tasting, before sampling the outstanding local cuisine in a family-run trattoria.

Enjoy a full-day tour in the surroundings of Portofino, discovering local excellence: from an outstanding small olive-oil producer - where you will experience an unusual tasting that will leave you surprised - to a fine wine producer, tasting their several wines.

Relax in Portofino walking along the glamorous streets around the main piazzetta of the town and have pleasant dinners tasting rich menus of fresh fish: don’t miss the giant shrimps, cooked following recipes that are guarded as a secret of the family.
