Yachting the Riviera

Portofino: Beloved Villa Durazzo, Pesto Demo & Tastings

This exclusive delightful event will take you by private ferry to charming Santa Margherita Ligure with its rich villas, characteristic houses, and grand hotels creating a magical reflection around the bay.  You will walk to the Villa Durazzo, rising from 3rd century Roman construction, dominating the surrounding landscape and embraced by an elegant Italian-style garden.  Take your time strolling the gardens, and enjoying the live music and the amazing view of the Tigulio Gulf. 
You will have a guided tour through the villa full of Genoese paintings, sculptures, tapestries, stuccos, marbles, majolicas, crystal and varnished chinoise and be entertained with a pesto-making demonstration from a local chef.  You will be invited to indulge in a delicious selection of local wine and food specialties.  Your private ferry will return you to Portofino pleasantly sated.

Please note: This Destination Discovery Event has been scheduled in a way that will allow you to book and experience another shore excursion on the same day and you will not miss anything.
