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.

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.
