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
