Harbour / Marina
“Portofino is a fashionable resort town. It is a place where you can enjoy a sophisticated social life, visit the many boutiques of chic and trendy Italian clothing, or simply sit in one of the little outdoor cafes and people-watch the day away. It is a place where flags of every country are flown from expensive yachts and where elegant parties rule. Portofino can be reached by train ( with a disembark at Santa Margherita Ligure and 20 minutes walk) or by ferries ( high season only).”

Point of Interest
“Further north of Cinque Terre is Portofino. The greater portion of the promontory of Portofino, including the surrounding coastline and seabed, have been turned into a Natural Park, one of the most important in the upper Tyrrhenian Sea. The ancient fishing village of Portofino is stunningly located at the western tip of the Golfo del Tigullio. The Benedictine abbey of San Fruttoso is located in a small bay which also houses the celebrated “Christ of the Deep,” a statue resting on the seabed 15 metres below the surface. ”
