On the right-hand side of the church, you will find the bell tower, built in the 13th century. When the “Duomo” is open guests will be able to take a peep inside at the majestic marble pulpit, richly cased with mosaics friezes and columns, supported by six slim spiral posts resting on marble lions. Guests will visit Villa Rufolo, a spectacular complex formed by the main “palazzo”, built in the second half of the 13th century, and various buildings in Arabian-Sicilian style on a wide terrace facing the gulf. After entering the smaller 14th-century tower, guests will continue along a small avenue flanked by cypresses and then reach the Moorish courtyard, decorated with friezes and arabesques, in front of the palazzo, which can only be visited in part. Having passed the knights room, the picturesque “Belvedere” opens up, a luxurious garden with pines cypresses and exotic plants. From here it is possible to descend to the lower terrace, also bright with flowers and exotic plants. The spectacular nature of the gardens particularly struck Richard Wagner and saw in them the materialisation of the magic garden or Klingsor in his Parsifal. Some free time will be given to browse and shop around, among the incredibly friendly inhabitants of Ravello. You are advised to have a taste of the local wine, one of the best produced in the region, thanks to the optimal climate conditions.

Portofino (Schiff auf Reede)
Hiking excursion to Santa Margherita Ligure.

This scenic hiking tour departs from the tender pier passing through town by the trendy boutiques and shops that surround the charming Piazzetta and the waterfront. Walk by the church, before you reach the hiking path: depending on weather and paths conditions, the first half of the tour is mostly uphill, walking towards Cappelletta, San Sebastiano and Olmi, to reach then Molini; the path leads the way through the Mediterranean flora, with fancy villas, vineyards and olive groves. Alternatively, you can walk towards Paraggi along the breathtaking coastline where the hills and the seaside live harmoniously together. Then, hike up towards Acquaviva and Molini, where an old olive oil mill has been renovated, currently housing a little museum and a tiny cafè with amenities. Vegetation surrounds the medieval dwellings, and the cliffs drop off to the crystal clear ocean, making this one of the most beautiful locations of the Riviera. Continue towards Santa Anna and Nozarego to finally start the walk down to the main promenade of Santa Margherita Ligure. Santa Margherita's forms, colours, the arrangement of its characteristic houses, its luxurious villas and grand hotels all seemingly painted around the bay produces something of a magical reflection. Then, you will break for a refreshment at a local cafe and have some time to browse the shops before boarding your van or the ferry for the return journey to Portofino or to extend your stay in Santa Margherita to make your way back to the ship later on. NOTE: This is a "real" hike, and while the pace is not too brisk.

Excursion to Èze and Monaco

On foot you will enter the 14th-century double gateway with crenellations and a sentry walk leading into the steep, narrow streets, sometimes running beneath the carefully restored houses which are now smart boutiques or artists' studios. Streets of this town are closed to traffic, and the town can only be explored by foot. Do not miss the magnificent views of the coast from the top. Driving back to Monaco, your coach will park at the foot of the rock of Monaco. From here you will take escalators and elevators which will carry you to the Old City: "The Rock".
