Small Fishing Village
Originally a small fishing village shaded by eucalyptus and olive trees, Portofino has become a sunny and relaxing paradise on the Ligurian Riveria. Dotted with palm trees and overlooking an azure sea, the tranquillity of the Italian countryside with its olive groves, holm oaks, pines and cypress trees is within a short walking distance, whilst the exquisite swimming cove at Paraggi is only a few minutes drive. Take in the pastel buildings against the green mountains. No wonder many an artist has painted this place!Related to:

There is an abundance of hiking activities that are sponsored by the Italian National Parks. The hikes vary in length and difficulty. Check out their schedule of events on their website. This will help give you a better idea of what the Portofino area has to offer.Related to:

The central square of Portofino is small but very nice.
During summer time is really crowded and a lot of yatch are anchored to the pier.
There are a lot of very very very nice shops there, the most important brands.....but also very very very expensive :-D
Wander around the port
Have a peek into the lives of the rich and famous. We saw some of the most expensive cruise boats with a complement of staff serving the owners lunch on the deck. The buildings are beautifully painted in lovely pastel colours.
There are very expensive restaurants but there are also inexpensive ones as well so you can enjoy the atmosphere all the same. It is a very laid back town and a greta way to while away the afternoon
