Description


Abbey of Cervara visit


You will meet your guide at ship dock or at tender mooring; he will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board. She will introduce you to your professional English-speaking driver. They will escort you to a historical Abbey in order to enjoy a unique experience. The Cervara Abbey, or Monastery of San Girolamo at Monte di Portofino, is a monastic complex overlooking the sea.

The edifice was built in 1361 by Ottone Lanfranco. The monastery was elevated to the rank of abbey in 1546.  

The abbey has a consecrated church, a cloister XVI century, the tower, the main body of the building and a beautiful garden.

You will visit the Square, the Crypt, the Capitulary room, the Sixteenth-century Cloister and a look of the Saracen Tower, the Chapel of Saint Jerome, the Gallery of the Emperor and Grand Staircase of tapestries, the Gardemìn of Gardenias, the Terrazza Belvedere on the monumental garden, the Prison of Francis I and the Court of Wisteria.

What was once the garden of the Benedictine monks is now the only monumental Renaissance Italian-style garden preserved in Italian Riviera. It is unique in that it is directly facing the sea (in Liguria there are no other because plants suffer the salt), and because it is spread over two levels. The feeling is that of being on the prow of a ship almost completely surrounded by the sight of the sea and coast: on one side the Gulf of Tigullio - which runs from Rapallo to Chiavari - across the promontory of Portofino - with the inlets of Paraggi and Portofino.

After the visit the driver will escort you at a typical restaurant. After lunch your driver will escort you back to the Port.

About Us

We offer unique access to some of the most unavailable & undiscovered experiences one can imagine. A Milan shopping experience in a fashion designer’s showroom? A private dinner in Venice on the roof terrace of Peggy Guggenheim? Quad bike trekking on the active Etna volcano with an extreme-sport guide? Whatever your client can dream, we can deliver. We focus on designing non-Googleable experiences—watching the Palio di Siena horse race from a hot-air balloon; visiting the private castle where the Godfather trilogy was shot. Kids love visiting an ice cream factory, while big kids clamor for a chance to drive a Maserati or Lamborghini.

Visit to Excavation underneath the Vatican • Truffle Hunt in Tuscany or Piemonte • Vasari Corridor in Florence • Private visit to the Sistine Chapel
