“Magnificent views of the Italian Riviera”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We arrived in Portofino in the morning. We walked down to the harbor and asked where to start the walk to Castello Brown. A man painting the outside of the Yacht Club (no yachts around!) indicated some steps to us. We started the climb up the hill. It took us a little while but we were in no hurry, just enjoying the day. When we reached the castle there was a 5 euro entrance charge. Once inside, I thought that the gardens were somewhat disappointing. However, the views from the castle and the terrace were stunning. It was a good place to just sit and enjoy the sea breezes, sun on your face and beautiful views. The castle and its history is somewhat interesting. Everyone seemed to be fascinated by the black and white pictures on the wall of the famous people that have visited Portofino. The castle itself is almost completely empty. When we left, we went down a path to the left that took us back to the harbor by a different pathway.
