Location

What to do in Portofino

Although being just a small Italian fishing village, Portofino has become an internationally acclaimed resort thanks to its picturesque beauty. The town, crowded round a small harbor, is considered to be among the most beautiful Italian destinations.
From here you may visit the Cinque Terre with the iconic five villages of Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso. Walking from village to village - or hopping on the train which connects them all - picture-perfect sights of this idyllic UNESCO seaside site will remain etched in your memory forever. With the help of our concierge you may also rent a boat, the best way to enjoy this spectacular and scenic area with its colorful architecture and explore the beautiful coves accessible only by sea.
You can drive to Genoa (30 min by car), nicknamed la Superba ("the Proud one") due to its glorious past and impressive landmarks. Still the biggest Italian port city, Genoa was declared a UNESCO site because of the impressive architecture of its buildings, rich in history and artistic value. Drive to Milan (2 hrs) to visit the magnificent city and shop in the Fashion Capital of the world!
