~Portofino, Italy~

Portofino and the small fishing ports of the Ligurian Coast are worthy rivals to St. Tropez and the French Riviera. Stroll seaside promenades lined with palm trees or climb narrow alleys lined with towering, pastel-painted houses. Secluded coves, promontories crowned with medieval churches, fine beaches – Portofino and the Ligurian Riviera offer some of the finest scenery in all Italy.

Portofino has been a popular winter resort since the 19th century, when the railway first connected the small fishing ports of the Italian Riviera with Genoa.
