If you are visiting Italy early February and are looking for a place to celebrate Valentine’s day, Camogli, a small town located on the Italian Riviera, is the right place for you.
Just a few km away from the Cinque Terre area, located between Portofino Mountain and the Ligurian Sea, Camogli is a tourist resort with narrow streets which are lined by tall columns of pastel colored homes. It offers an ideal setting for romance.
Furthermore, from Feb. 3 through 18, Camogli will be hosting a Valentine festival.
For two weeks, many Valentine themed events are held in the town. Restaurants and pasticcerie offer dinners and cakes related to Valentine themes. A special Valentine market sells luxurious gifts on the promenade.
If you choose to dine at any Camogli’s restaurant, try local delicacies such as handmade pasta with pesto sauce, seafood, and the local dessert specialty, chocolate-rum Camogliesi.
