Portofino is a nice place to visit. Restaurants are fine but if you think about shripms fish check the prices first. If you go by car you can find parks wich are not so expensive. Sun set time and marina is really fantastic.

We drove from Newcastle in our new sports car, so it was great fun to park in the multi story car park in the village and find a hotel (one of only two obvious ones), which was amazing.

We went to Portofino, from Cavi. We stopped along the way a few times. I also can recomand the town of San Margherita. It is one of the most beautiful towns I've ever seen in my life. It is beautiful and clean. Just amazing

Charming harbour,beautiful colorful houses,lots of botiques,restaurants and cafes.You will want to take a thousand pictures,but take a moment and just look around and be happy you had the chance to see this beauty. It's the playground of the rich so the prices match.But well worth a visit.

The marina in Portofino is truly a special place to visit. Loads of great boutique shops, restaurants and bars, and well constructed walkways. Be sure to visit the bar under the lighthouse.
