Recco, in the Golfo Paradiso ('Paradise Gulf'), between Portofino and Genoa, is the perfect destination not only for the nearby beaches where it's possible to taste one of the most renown delicacies: the 'focaccia' of Recco, but also to reach the center of Rapallo (10 km), Camogli (4 km) with its famous fish festival on the first Sunday of May, and the more fashionable Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino (15 km). On the first week of September, there's also a Fire Festival ('Sagra del Fuoco') when volunteers from the seven town's districts get together to celebrate the 'Nostra Signora del Suffragio', matron saint, through a fireworks competition with the best Italian pyrotechnics experts. Every year, this traditional Fire Festival draws thousands of people, who run to Recco to enjoy the local products, stroll through the many market stands but, most of all, witness the fireworks exhibitions as well as the traditional shooting of 'mascoli' (a particular type of fireworks). Given the moderate climate of the area and the many history-rich towns nearby: Florence, Pisa, Lucca... all day-trip possibilities, Recco is an ideal destination even during mid-seasons, as Golfo Paradiso constantly enjoys a temperature 6/7 degrees different from Genoa.
