Pretty little port surrounded by lovely looking and very photogenic old buildings. Boat trips depart, sometimes for fishing trips, sometimes as the local "bus" for places such as San Fruttuoso and Camogli. There's a sculpture garden (most of which can be seen from outside), a...More

This is an amazing place. Very touristic, but I believe it is still worth going. I will come back when I have the chance.

The whole area is striking with its brightly colored palaces lost on the hilly coast across from the sparkling Mediterranean sea. There actually is a red carpet on the sidewalk along the coastal road from Santa Margherita to Portofino: it's a beautiful 30mn walk/jog, well...More

Portofino is very touristy, very expensive and very overrated. Yes, it is a nice town with a beautiful views, but you can find many other places in Italy as beautiful as Portofino. Not much to do.

We took the boat from Rapallo. This is what we recommend, as there's a connection to Portofino with only one stop in Santa Margherita. It takes 30min in total, 13E for adult, 9 for children. Portofino is small but deserves some time in one of...More

We walked from Santa Margherita and the path went along behind these buildings. Further along the path you looked back at these buildings and people were swimming in the sea below them. The whole of Portofino is beautiful, but in summer it is very busy.
