As a Dalida's song says-I found my love in Portofino- its one of the most romantic places I have ever been. Picturesque peninsula with many boats and only 300 residents- all others are tourists, surrounded with beautiful Ligurian sea. You can come to Portofino only by boat. Main square made for joy and sun bathing and many tiny streets. While... More

Incredibly beautiful part of the world, with amazing little cafes and shops with great little alleyways to explore the shopping.

Beautiful, but so well maintained here and in Rapallo that it feels a bit Hollywood. We did have a great lunch and some fun shopping here though. Enjoy!

Portofino is a small village on the North Riviera where it is said a lot of rich people are going on vacation. It is very pituresque, few small streets, a square overlooking the marina and a hill in front. All around the marina there are nice cafeteria, restaurants and shops. We visited the village for a morning walk around, by... More

Portofino is just gorgeous! We were staying in St. Margarita and took the 20 - minute bus ride to Portofino. Unfortunately the buses were overcrowded and the drivers somewhat rough on the breaks as they winded down the narrow coastal road. The other option is to take the special pedestrian coastal path with a beautiful view. I don't recommend to... More

We took a detour to visit Portofino on our way to cinque terre and we were not disappointed. While the place caters to tourists, and mainly to the rich an famous, the views and location are simply amazing. Parking is limited and expensive. Perhaps it would have been better to rent a bike in Santa Margherita in Ligure 5 kms... More

You can't take a bad photo here! It's so beautiful and if you just move a few feet to one side, you'll get another wonderful view.

For those who've never been , there's a wonderful suggestion of and homage to the Italian Riviera in Portmeirion, Wales. The architect engineer who created it never intended it, as many assume, as an imitation of Portofino. It was conceived as a testament more than anything else and well worth a visit in itself, shining in a land of vastly... More
