Portofino, Italy


Portofino at one time an Italian fishing village located in the province of Genoa in the Liguria region of the Italian Riviera. It may be the most popular Italian resort town on this famous coast, it’s also the most photographed. Portofino is a picturesque, half-moon shaped seaside village with pastel houses lining the shore of the harbor. Portofino has shops, restaurants, cafes, and luxury hotels including the uber-exclusive Splendido. The shopping here is incredible as are the many art galleries. There are also opportunities for hiking, diving, boating, resort golf, tennis and biking (once you get past the taxi stand) as there are no bikes and cars permitted within the town limits. The town is closely associated with Paraggi Beach, which is a few minutes up the coast. Other nearby villages include Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo, Camogli, Chiavari, Lavagna, and Sestri Levante. Highlight Land Adventures include; The Splendido’s Italian Cuisine – A Taste of Tradition, The Art of Making Pesto, Hiking to Santa Margherita and more. You may also ask your Club Director to take you on a picturesque stroll to the lighthouse (Faro) or a bike ride to Rapallo along the coast.
