A painting in the Italian riviera

Portofino is a beautiful town situated near Santa Margharita in Northern Italy. It is lined with mega yachts and picture perfect buildings with all the charm Italy can offer. It is best to approach Portofino from the water by boat.


Portofino travelogue picture
Portofino is a small seaside village known for its charm. It has a marina lined with cafes with hills as a backdrop. It is very colorful and very green surrounded with aqua water.

Favourite spots:
Strolling down the marina area is a treat. There was a melodic song long ago called "I fell in love in Portofino" sung in french by Egyptian-Italian female artist Dalida. It is a love song still very fit for this place. Many locals I met still remembered the song.

What's really great:
Everything about Portofino is special and is a journey down memory lane for many people.

Accommodations:
We came to Portofino via Santa Margharita via private yacht. There are many nice hotels.

Restaurants:
Foccacia is a local specialty as are many Italian dishes including seafood, pasta.

Other recommendations:
Try to come to Portofino by boat as it is very beautiful. You can get a boat ride from Santa Margharita, another jewel nearby.
