The public bathroom was lovely and kept very clean. Basically the only public bathroom in the entire cinque terre area that was usable. No litter anywhere. Beautiful walking area, lovely winding paths by the sea.

Portofino & Santa Margherita the most beautiful nature and water! No beach, only rocks, wasn't a problem for us but some might not like it. The towns are cute and u can walk from one to another easily. Portofino is expensive, the other more affordable! Totally recommend! We are still under the spell of its beauty!

We arrived by ferry into the picture postcard harbor. The buildings are brilliantly colored and it is visually stunning. The streets are lined with many quant little shops (not all tourist stuff). We sat at a seaside cafe and enjoyed a wonderful local wine and a wonderful snack of olives, tomatoes in olive oil, fresh mozzarella and bread. It was a delightful experience.

Nestled in a secluded harbor, Portofino is a picturesque seaside village with brightly colored houses that have Tromp L'oeil fronts that mimic expensive architectural details. You'll find shops, restaurants, cafes, and luxury hotels as well as narrow trails that meander up the hillside to the old castle and a lighthouse at the end. Once you've explored the tiny village and hiked the trail to the lighthouse and back, you can enjoy a delicious meal and glass of wine at one of several restaurants that line the harbor. Afterwards, water taxis are available to take you to nearby Santa Margherita Ligure.

In this articolo i wont to expaine a famous Italian place of liguria area what in 1950 e 1960 year was a meta of famous american actor and who don’t remember Fred Buscaglione in song i love Portofino.
Now give some small information that maybe you do not know, Portofino condiderata the pearl of our seas, opera of the ancient romans that was then called portus delfinis date of donation to the monks bobbio we are in the year 1000. then in 1075 was bought from some of noble and built Rapallo. in 1229 was built from Genoa. Suffered then many connections including that of Sforza duke of Milan, but no one' a take possession. Suffered olso the french domination of Bonaparte and 1815 ocorpored in kingdom of Sardinia to return after the war finally as' now.
Well this brief history of portofino, but does not stop here, sin by 60 years was half of actors, directors who have turned parechie scene of various film note to the soap opera and Beautiful and “Centovetrine” at moment is a limitade area to the non ahtorizaid boat create de natural marine park, to report the ancine atmosfear in the see .
The natural protected area of Portofino was established in 1988 by the ministry of the environment of interest medeiterraneo.Oll screen the proposed of turning it into National. Has divided in 3 areas, the zone “A”the “ B”end the “C”, characterized by various bans, ans including Santa margherita and San Fruttuoso hosts and of course the famous christ of the abyss the christ arrives in meters -25.
Avaible in our Web our video “ Remind of Portofino tra mito e realtà”.
Europhean diving to reach , because the diving only is autorizaid to pass and to stop in this area, and so you have be the possibility to sweam in a beatiful zone. In effect you can see several fisch in the natural reserve and you can use the Europhean diving center by Mr.Antonio Pizzo to reach it , because the diving only is autorizaid to pass and to stop in this area.
You can reach portofino by train a stop directly in Santa Margherita station and after a bus directly to Portofino, or if you use the car you must use the motor way number- A4 and take the wai out Rapallo immedyatle to reach the raoun and take the route in direction oppost to Rapallo the way is more long bat you don’t try traffic and you have the possybiky to discover a beatifuk trip in the panoramic hill front of the sea.
By fly directly to Genoa airpot.
