From Portofino with love


A Mecca for different types of people, a trendy destination for the world’s superyachts for decades, loved by crowned heads, poets and stars: summarising buzzy Portofino along the Italian Riviera would take hours. A tiny village between sea and mountains , perfectly symbolising the Italian "dolce vita", Portofino is a natural paradise for lovers of the sea and sailing. This perfect gem, spanning just 2.5 square kilometres, is fully opened to the world. An authentic village with a history dating back hundreds of years, its small marina frequented by the most beautiful superyachts and sailing yachts in the world, Portofino offers the iconic "piazzetta" square, and unmissable itineraries known to only a few. From nature escapes to shopping trails, from typical Italian streets to  tasty restaurants serving up fresh seafood and incredible flavours, rediscover this destination from a different perspective: the perspective of those who live here.
