Portofino is an Italian fishing village and holiday resort famous for its picturesque harbour and historical association with celebrity and artistic visitors. Venture out of the city with trips to Parco Naturale Regionale di Portofino (in Santa Margherita Ligure), Sestri Levante (Baia del Silenzio & Hike the Punta Manara) and Santuario di Montallegro (in Rapallo). There's much more to do: make a trip to Santa Margherita Ligure, identify plant and animal life at Area Marina Protetta Portofino, explore the historical opulence of Gropparello Castle - Fairy Tales Park, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Portofino online trip builder .
