Camogli, romance by the sea: colored houses and a glorious maritime past

Camogli is a beautiful small town down the Riviera di Levante, Liguria.

Its name is due to the coloured houses placed side by side in front of the sea: they are known as “ca’ delle mogli – wives houses” as related to women who were used to remain at home waiting for their men gone fishing at the sea. The old facades are very typical and I’m told they once helped the fishermen to easier catch the way back to their port.

This is a place I love, where the feeling is homey and everyone welcomes sweet hearts.

To me, no more words needed. Enjoy my album.
