Best Base to visit Portofino Italian Riviera

Hello! I just want to know where is the best location to have a base to explore the Italian Riviera like Portofino, Sta. Margherita etc. We will be staying for 5 nights. Thanks in advance.

For visiting Portofino without staying there, Santa Margherita Ligure is the best location, and it is also well-sited for visiting other places along the Riviera.

SML has many nice hotels and restaurants, train station, and is a very pretty town with a great promenade and beautiful harbor.
