One of the most pleasant surprises on the Italian Riviera is the small fishing village of Camogli, tucked away between Portofino and the Ligurian Sea.

Camogli's biggest tourist attraction is its annual fish-fry and festival during the second weekend of May. Saturday's "blessing of the fish" festivities include bonfires and a spectacular display of fireworks. On Sunday the town pulls out what is said to be the largest skillet in the world (about four meters -- more than 12 feet -- in diameter) and fries up a huge helping of fish donated by the local fish cooperative.

The best way to get there is by train. From Genoa, it's just a 20-minute ride. Driving is not recommended since parking is scarce, especially during the crowded summer months. Once you arrive, you can get just about everywhere by foot. Just be sure to put on your walking shoes and be prepared to hike a lot of stairs.
