Escape to the Riviera Coast for a spot of old-school, luxurious Italian glamour.
At a glance
Portofino is a small, picturesque fishing village on the Riviera Coast. With its tiny harbor as the centerpiece; the higgledy-piggledy pastel buildings of the town huddle around it, creeping up into the leafy, wooded hillsides.
What to see
Explore Portofino’s secret side with a private boat trip to the beautiful secluded bays around the Riviera. Here you can marvel at the ancient hamlets of the famous Cinque Terre, one of the wonders of Italy. Made up of five tiny villages clinging to a stretch of rocky coastal cliffs, the Cinque Terre is one of Portofino’s highlights.
Afterwards take a stroll along the seafront through olive groves, lemon trees and terraced vineyards. A trip to Portofino would be incomplete without a glass of Pinot by the harbor as you watch the sun go down.
Why we love it
Portofino offers a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere than that of its city neighbors and is all the more charming and appealing for it.
