During the summer heat it was still a intermediate walk up to the Faro.Unfortunately the cafe was closed in the morning when we went there. Beautiful views all around, but wouldn't necessarily say a 'must do'.

With a 270 view of the Ligurian Sea, and Portofino in panoramic, definitely worth the walk! By the way, the walk under the pinetrees with Portofino grove on one side, is part of the experience!
