Camogli is a small Italian fishing village and tourist resort located in the province of Genoa on the Italian Riviera. Camogli has 5,692 inhabitants.
Small harbor in Camogli.

The name has a double meaning in Italian. The first translation, "houses close together", is apparent when strolling through the town's narrow streets, which are lined by tall columns of pastel-colored homes. The second meaning, "houses of wives", refers to the sea captains, sailors and fishermen's wives, who traditionally spent their time at home while their husbands were out at sea.

Camogli is located just at the basis of Monte di Portofino and guarantees a very special gastronomy tradition (focaccia in particular).
