We love fish, yet have never warmed to a local speciality called mosciame, a dried fish meat over which extra-virgin oil is drizzled, served in thin slices and accompanies a fillet of tuna. There is no better drama then sailing into Portofino after viewing majestic Mount Portofino as it projects superbly into the sea from Rapallo. At the foot of... More

The scenery is spectacular and the people are friendly. There are restaurants, shops and artists' work shops. A beautiful place and should not be missed if you are in the area.

Make sure you take a camera when you visit this delightful place. We went with a tour group on a little boat (that still had room for 40 passengers) from Santa Margherita.

We had a couple hours to see this magical little Italian town, a play ground for the rich and famous. It is hectic during the tourist season, but that does not stop you enjoying a walk around the town to look at the exclusive shops etc. The marina with the magnificent yachts is an experience not to miss. Well worth... More

The view from the castle to the colorful village and it's lovely marina was astonished. It was one of our highlights of our 8 days tour in the French and Italy Riviera's.

It is a very nice and elegant area to walk and relax. If you do not own a yacht, then you can only admire the beauties anchored in the Marina. Portofino is a exclusive place on Italian Rieviera, so the yachts are also luxurious. A walk in the Marina can be very relaxing.

The port area is well worth a visit and gaze at the superyachts in the harbour !!!!! Be warned the shops are exclusive as are the bars and restaurants with prices to match !!!! Worth a treat though , you only live once !!!!

Diving we can see some big fishes like Mero, Splender Gobies, Grupers, etc... visibility is good like 10 to 15 m and water T about... More

This must be the St Bart's of Italy. Drool over the yachts in the harbor, the beautiful people who get sick on them and fine jewellery in the stores. Take lots of pictures of the Castello Brown (but don't waste your time visiting except for the exercise of the climb), buy the t-shirt and have a birra or gelato on... More
