Nice looking building from the outside - it was closed for a wedding (Bride / groom had flown in from Scotland for the day!!!!!) Locals said it was mainly a wedding venue so difficult to see inside. But views were impressive and the coffee shop was fun

Climb along the direct route was taxing; found a direct route stairwell down to the waterfront on the way out which was much easier. The church and grounds are beautiful and well kept.

I was enjoying a beautiful afternoon walk around the small town and I saw the entrance of the park. I could really not prevent myself from going inside! It seemed to me like a dream to enjoy all that shade, all those wonderful trees, the silence, the freshness. Don't miss the chance to visit it! The entrance to the park... More

This is a beautiful old palazzo set in lovely gardens, and is a place that is popular for weddings (including Rod Stewart and Wayne Rooney according to their website). It stands high above the town with good views and the interior rooms are very interesting to look around, with the help of information provided in the booklet given to all... More

Visited Villa Durazzo as part of a private event held by Windstar cruises. The location and the food were spot on. The grounds were beautiful. Just a short ferry ride from Portofino and worth every minute

This lovely old villa stands in lush green gardens at the top of a hill overlooking Santa Margherita harbour. It has an elegant facade painted pink and cream. The interior is beautifully furnished. There was a wedding in the gardens, the day we arrived and inside the villa was set up with tables and chairs for the meal. A perfect... More

The garden is amazing and you really want to spend time there to look at the scenery and just enjoy the sun. The house is amazing to look at, if you don't want to pay the entrance fee to go into the villa, you're not really missing out on much. It's good for a calming walk to the top of... More

Nice gardens around villa. Not sure why there are too many turtles in fountain! Could benefit by better signage from seafront

This beautiful building was the venue for Wayne Rooney's wedding... It's a stunning building with breathtaking baroque interiors. We were given a self-guided tour and really enjoyed the calm and relaxed atmosphere away from the main drag. It has some notable painting and architectural features. Well worth a detour and the climb up from the promenade
