Portofino is a chic and charming resort for chic and charming people. The yachting crowds adore it, it's spectacularly located: beautiful to look at from the water, and its beautiful to gaze out over the Mediterranean from Portofino. The atmosphere is golden with sunshine, and the kind of happy wellbeing one must get from owning a beautiful yacht. While Portofino has some incredibly luxurious resorts, your wallet doesn't have to stretch too far to stay in one of the best places to stay in Portofino.
Portofino's beauty means this little fishing village couldn't stay undeveloped for long, but Portofino still has plenty of character. The waterfront is the place to be, with old customs and new faces (American bars, for example) creating a friendly, vibrant atmosphere.
Most of Portofino's pleasure can be found from just strolling around, relaxing on the beach and enjoying the feeling of contentment Portofino permeates. But if you do want a break from Italian Rivera perfection, the Castello Brown, a 16th century castle, and Divo Martino, and 11th century church, are two of the highlights. It's also worth doing a spot of cruising, on one of the public boats if you didn't bring your own yacht this time.
