This is one picturesque beauty of a town. We took a boat here from Santa Margherita and spent the day enjoying the town. We hiked up to the lighthouse enjoying breathtaking views all along the way. The town was fun to explore and we enjoyed...More

I have seen a lot of photos of Portofino but until you see it in person you have no idea how really beautiful it is. Worth a lot of "stroll" time.

Picture perfect, in fact lovelier than pictures show. A perfect place to relax for a couple days and roam. The view from the ferry is worth the ride, the view from the hilltop, worth the climb. Not as expensive to me as everyone says but...More

Arriving by yacht as we did makes it all the difference. The Portofino area is a must see when in Italy. Be sure and have dinner dockside at Chuflay Restaurant.

Arrived by boat from Santa Margherita de Ligure which took 15 minutes of perfect perspective. Beautiful fall weather in October with lots of sunshine and slight breeze. Not so crowded with lots of local Italian families mixing with the tourists on this last days before...More

Pretty little port surrounded by lovely looking and very photogenic old buildings. Boat trips depart, sometimes for fishing trips, sometimes as the local "bus" for places such as San Fruttuoso and Camogli. There's a sculpture garden (most of which can be seen from outside), a...More

This is an amazing place. Very touristic, but I believe it is still worth going. I will come back when I have the chance.
