I spent several fabulous days here. You can easily arrange a car trip to the Portofino when you spend your vacation on the French Riviera. You’ll fall in love with this fairytale town in Italy.
And you will feel like you have gone back to the 1950’s and 60’s. That is when Portofino became popular with jet setting celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor, Ingrid Bergman, Ernest Hemingway, Frank Sinatra, Brigitte Bardot and on and on.
The rich and famous would arrive by yacht and spend their time lounging around luxury hotels and private villas. It was a place to see and be seen. Portofino does not offer undiscovered beauty but the beauty of Portofino is not diminished by the seasons. It is just as pretty in the fall, spring and even winter so plan your trip keeping the crowds in mind.
