Disliked - nothing Liked - colourful house facades illuminated towards sunset, ogling at the goods on display in certain shop windows, viewing the people dressed to the nines who were queuing to board a celebrity yacht where a party was underway, the play of light on the water, relatively inexpensive restaurants from which to absorb the sights

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.

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.
