It's easy to arrive at this precious little enclave from Genoa (1.5hrs.). The village still holds on two its "chic" charm and exclusivity which attracts jetsetters from around the world. The train left us in Santa Margarita Ligure, and from there we took a 10-minute bus along a scenic coastal highway and finally arrived in Portofino.

The village is a small group of buildings and homes full of high-end stores, fine restaurants, and a small harbor for sailboats and yachts. If you head up to Catestelo Brown on the hill opposite Portofino, you'll have great views of the village

An idyllic and exclusive village

Portofino is one of those places you just have to visit in your lifetime. In a great location between the mountains and the sea, Portofino is an idyllic and exclusive village. So exclusive, in fact, that you can only arrive by a small road which dead-ends in the town and is controlled (when lots of people come, they block the road and latecomers must wait their turn) or by boat (the best way, if you have the possibility). You'll be welcomed by colorful houses and spectacular terraces, a charming harbor with luxury yachts, and a viewpoint perfect for postcard-worthy shots.

Excellent
